We are continuing our Sunday tours during the 2014 season until October 26. If you have been putting off visiting, which many of us do, Sunday attendance will soon be ending.

The museum consists of three buildings and numerous rooms, featuring Salem history. Make it a point to make plans to visit. Many out-of-state have visited and found it very informative and rewarding.

In addition to our regular refreshed exhibits, this season’s featured exhibit is “The Ted Enders Gallery of Wildlife Mounts.”  Through the courtesy of daughter, Elaine Reiter (pictured above) and family, a private collection of over 48 animals are displayed through the end of the 2014 season. Full body, shoulder & head mounts are part of this “Hunter’s’ Collection”.  Mr. Enders, now deceased, collected his trophies from Colorado, Idaho, Georgia, Tennessee, Pennsylvania, Alaska, Alberta-Canada, Tzaneen-Africa and his home state of Ohio.  Sizes range from the large Alaskan Bull Moose to medium size Idaho Mountain Lion, to a smaller Salem, Ohio Ring-necked Pheasant. The smallest is a weasel with a frog as prey from creek on Georgetown Rd., Salem, Ohio. Through the years Mr. Enders hunted all of the gallery animals himself.

Entrance to the museum is at 208 South Broadway Avenue.
Call 330-337-8514 for additional information or to schedule group tours during the week.

The Salem Ghost Trolley Tour takes people out of the downtown area to cemeteries and other “haunted” areas around Salem. There are three occasions that you do exit the trolley and walk around so good walking shoes are recommended.
