New Book Titles Available

in our Gift Shop        

to visitor Tilly Snyder Frantz      

The Salem Historical Society’s gift shop is always on the lookout for new material of the Salem area and interest.  Along with the large volume of Salem resources, new titles have recently been made available in time for your holiday shopping. 

The historical book “Lost Youngstown”  describes the loss of the many area industries over the years. 

For those interested in ghostly stories, we have “The Ohio State Reformatory” and “Murder & Mayhem on Ohio’s Rails” .

Because of the connection with Alan Freed, a Salem resident and leader in the Rock & Roll Era, “Cleveland’s Rock and Roll Roots” is now available.

Consider stopping at our gift shop for a great selection of materials dealing with Salem’s historical interests.  We are open Monday, Wednesday, and Thursday mornings 9 to noon.
