Seats are still available for Saturday’s August 11th Underground Railroad tour on the Quakertown Trolley scheduled for 12:00. Cost is $15.00 a person and a minimum of 15 are necessary to conduct the tour.

Rising costs to maintain and operate our 1987 trolley, coupled with short range, limited capacity, and less than optimal year-round performance, lead us to seek a replacement trolley.  We accept other donations at any to the Trolley Replacement Fund.

Underground Railroad Tour

Two Carrollton Church groups (Golden Agers from Carrollton Baptist Temple and OAKS from Carrollton Bible Church) recently arranged for a tour in Salem and everyone expressed how much they enjoyed it.
Please make the Salem Historical Society a part of your summer activities.  If you have never taken a tour of our four buildings, you are in for a treat.  Salem has such rich history and there is so much to learn.  We constantly are receiving new "old" items and adding them to our displays.  We love to get visitors.


The Salem Historical Society's annual summer picnic will be held Tuesday, August 14, at the Dale Shaffer meeting room, 239 South Lundy Avenue. Because of the Romanian theme, we invite anyone of Romanian heritage to join us for the evening. Table service and beverages will be provided. Plan to arrive after 5:30 for the 6:00 meal. Those attending should bring a favorite covered dish. Following dinner will be a posthumous audio presentation by Rosemarie Sulea Cardoso on Romanian Heritage which she which she shared in 2009. There will also be an opportunity to visit this year's featured Romanian exhibit in the Schell Building.
Questions can be answered by contacting the Salem Historical Society, 330-337-8514.
