Salem’s second century captured in booklet


SALEM, Ohio – The Salem Historical Society has produced volume two of Salem’s Historical Timeline, The Second Century, 1900-2003.

This extensive 30-page booklet lists the major events that occurred in Salem during the city’s second 100 years.

The events are not intended to be complete, only to invite the reader to read more in one of the available historical materials.

The timeline was adapted from the research of historian Dale Shaffer with the assistance of George Ritchie and David Stratton.

The cover features the Carnegie Public Library, built in 1905 and a popular landmark during these 100 years.

This second volume follows the first volume, a 22-page booklet rereleased recently that lists the major events during the city’s first 100 years.

On the cover of volume one is a photo of Salem’s old town hall (1846-1952), which was once referred to as the Faneuil Hall of the West.

Copies of these booklets can be found at the Historical Society Museum gift shop and the museums’ shops located at Aaron’s Books on Broadway Avenue.
