Preservation at Work
Historic Salem hosts a variety of educational and fundraising (and both) events throughout the year. Upcoming events include:
November 6, 2014, SALEM, MA—Christmas in Salem, thought to be the nation’s longest running holiday house tour, invites visitors to tour private homes spanning the grand boulevard of Lafayette Street in the historic South Salem. After the Great Salem Fire of 1914, the citizens of Salem put forth an effort to rebuild their lost homes in an architectural style that reflected the height of the Colonial Revival movement. In 2014, visitors will be able to tour these homes as well as the Victorian homes that were narrowly spared by the fire all while learning about the history of the renewal of the South Salem neighborhood.
