Take a tour of the Historic Salem Courthouse

Please take a few moments to take a virtual tour of this stately old historic building.  This video was produced and narrated by Tom McMorris of McMorris Photo (mcmorrisphoto.com) here in Salem.  It provides some great footage of the building including the jail which is not regularly open to the public. It also provides some interesting history as well. Enjoy!

Recent Restorations To The Courthouse

The current round of restoration has been completed, and we are very pleased with the results.  While the end result may not be as visible as past efforts, it is none the less very important to the overall restoration strategy in which we are endeavoring to “seal the envelope” of the Courthouse.  With this important step in place, we are ready for the next step in the process. Since you were unable to climb to the roof with us, these photos will give you an idea of just what was accomplished!
SAVE DISPATCHER NEEDED: The Salem Area Van Endeavor (SAVE) is seeking a kind volunteer to assist as the dispatcher for our van.  You would be responsible for contacting the riders on Monday (for Tuesday’s run) and Wednesday (for Thursday’s run) and then notifying the drivers. If you are able to assist, please call the office at 518-854-7053 and thank you!!
