Ran by the historical society and located in the Williams-Brown House built 1845, the Salem museum is home to a wide array of exhibits including Indian relics and Civil War artifacts. The educational and culture experience you receive at the museum will keep you coming back to explore all it has to offer. The museum also features a gift shop so that you can take a part of the town’s history home with you. You will also find special speakers and events hosted at the museum throughout the year.
Take the whole family and spend the day at the Salem Fair that takes place every July and is one of the largest in the state. With its array of attractions, you will find something for just about everyone to enjoy. Pet races, magic shows, and barrel racing are just a few of the events to give you a thrill. Explore the crafts on display, as well as a large variety of fun rides. Before leaving the fair, be sure to stop at one of the food vendors and enjoy a funnel cake or mouthwatering barbecue sandwich.
Spend the day exploring the many parks that Salem has to offer for a fun-filled day of outdoor adventures. Lake Spring Park is a great venue to rent for special occasions such as weddings, reunions, and other family celebrations. The beautiful gazebo and breathtaking scenery will help make your events even more special. Moyer Park allows you to entertain the little ones with a host of playgrounds, basketball courts, and a skate park. Host a special event here as well and rent out the large pavilion designed to hold 75 to 100 people.
