Join us or follow us as we recreate the journey undertaken by the Single Sisters from Bethlehem, Pennsylvania to North Carolina. The Journey will cover 500 miles over 29 days and will follow the historic route as outlined in the 1766 journal of Salome Meurer—along the colonial migration trail known as the Upper Road, which passes through Maryland, continues east of the mountains in Virginia, and turns west in Hillsborough, North Carolina.
Walkers will arrive in Bethabara, North Carolina, the Sisters’ original destination, on October 25. The final leg of the Journey will be 5.5 miles from Bethabara to a celebratory Homecoming on Salem Square on the afternoon of October 26, which will be open to all. Alumnae and friends are invited to participate in any part of the “Journey to Salem” in person or virtually. Watch your email for opportunities to sign up, train, or participate in your own location.
