The city has a council-manager form of government, and is governed by a mayor and eight-member city council. The current mayor is Allen Joines, the former vice president of Wake Forest University. In 2006, the Old Salem Museum & Visitor Center opened in downtown Winston-Salem on Trade Street near Fifth Street. It contains exhibits about the history of Winston's role in commerce as well as information about local landmarks such as Waughtown (the first free black settlement), White Hall (a plantation house built around 1760), and others that are listed on the National Register of Historic Places or have been designated local historic sites by City Ordinance No. 1128 passed April 11, 1985; it also includes an exhibit dedicated to Forsyth County residents who served during World War I entitled "Over There: A Salute to Our Heroes".
