1. Philip and Johanna Hoehns (Hanes) House Marker
Inscription. The 1796 Flemish-bond brick dwelling is a testament to the wealth, status, and sophistication of prominent farmer and distiller Philip and his wife Johanna Hoehns. Though in a rural area, the house was of similar caliber to many buildings in the Moravian congregation town of Salem at a time when rural settlers generally lived in log or frame houses. The Hoehns House is one of the oldest and most architecturally significant dwellings in Clemmons and Forsyth County.
