Salem Museum

Salem Museum

Originally used for the dual purpose of a residence and post office/general store, today the Salem Museum maintains its collection at this site. The museum displays several permanent exhibits, including "Community and Courage: The African American Experience in Salem," and "Twenty Decades: A History of Salem through 200+ Years." The Salem Museum also sponsors a rotating gallery of local artwork, publishes A Guide to Historic Salem, hosts workshops and programs, and maintains a historic herb garden.

We hope you enjoy our work.
