City of about 150,000 in West-Central North Carolina. It started as a tobacco town, and is the home or R.J. Reynolds Tobacco--makers of Camel, Winston and Salem cigarettes. Also famous for being the home of Wake Forest University and North Carolina School of the Arts. Krispy Kreme Doughnuts also started here about 70 years ago.
The home to one of two surviving Moravian communities in the country, and the Old Salem historical district is literally a 18th-Century town in the middle of the city.

Still very much a small southern town; city government has a fear of expansion and growth, and the "good old boys" still run things.
