The West Salem Historic District recognizes West Salem's importance in the development of Salem and the growth of Winston-Salem. The neighborhood initially was settled as farms on "outlots" serving Salem during the late 18th and early 19th centuries. During the early 20th century, West Salem became associated with the industrialization of Winston-Salem and its resulting suburban expansion. The district features an impressive collection of architectural styles, from mid 19th century Greek Revival and Picturesque-influenced buildings to a large collection of Craftsman-style bungalows. West Salem's period of significance is ca. 1865-1857. In 2005 the district was listed on the National Register of Historical Places.
