Mission & Vision


The Salem Courthouse Community Center is dedicated to providing a venue for artistic endeavors, for craft making, and for unique educational experiences that help our young people to meet their full potential. We look at the present as a steppingstone to the future and give individuals a chance to enjoy and to serve the community. We celebrate our past by restoring our historic building.


We will enrich the quality of life in Salem and the surrounding area by honoring our history, by fostering creative activities in the present, and by preparing our youth for the future. At the Historic Courthouse, all people can grow together through learning and artistic expression while contributing to our community and the world at large.


The Salem Courthouse is a hub of community spirit and committed to the five pillars of a strong organization. We value cooperation, collaboration, diversity, creativity, and our place in history.
