Study South: Exploure Your Own Backyard

Old Salem Museums & Gardens and the Museum of Early Southern Decorative Arts (MESDA) have launched the Study South initiative, a period of online and onsite study, research, and experimentation available to scholars, researchers, makers, and any other members of the public who wish to intensively study the history of the American South using the Museums’ unparalleled resources. The Study South initiative will run from July through December 2020.
In addition to free access to Old Salem and MESDA’s online resources, the Museums’ research centers and library will be open by appointment starting in July; in August, the Museums’ collections also will be open by appointment.
