ESSEX HERITAGE GRANT SUPPORTS EXPANSION OF HSI’S HOUSE PLAQUE PROGRAM INTO SALEM’S “POINT” NEIGHBORHOOD
July 27, 2016, Salem, MA – Historic Salem, Inc. (HSI) will begin this summer to expand its plaque program for Salem’s historic houses into “the Point,” a neighborhood that has been home to new immigrants since the late 1800s. The project is funded in part through the Essex Heritage Partnership Grant Program.
“The Point was added to the National Register of Historic Places last year, and these plaques are a logical next step,” observed Jennifer Firth, HSI President. “They will help tell the story of generations of immigrants who helped make Salem the thriving community it is today,” she added.
Thank you to all our members for helping us play our role in saving cultural and architectural history of Salem.
Special thank you to our event and capital supporters.
