Each year, over 1,000 passengers including school children, out-of-town visitors, and residents take advantage of our various trolley tours:
with plans to add tours for Charles Burchfield and Alan Freed.
The trolley participates in community events and is rented for weddings, birthdays, reunions, and other celebrations.
During this year’s brainstorming meeting, a trustee suggested that for fun, the museum should have a contest where people try to guess unusual artifacts we have in the museum. So from time to time we will post pictures to see if you can identify objects we have collected from Salem and related donors.
We hope you win!
The Museum Gift Shop is located on the lower level of the Dale Shaffer Research Library facing South Lundy and is open during our regular hours or by appointment.
The gift shop offers Salem-related merchandise, some of which are exclusive.
The Dale Shaffer Research Library has books and file cabinets full of articles, original documents, photos, and other archival material for almost any subject and many people related to Salem and the surrounding areas.
Our staff is knowledgeable and willing to help. Visit us during business hours or call to make other arrangements.

The Salem Historical Society is a non-profit 501(c)3 organization.

These donations are always used wisely and are greatly appreciated.
