Salem is a small city with history dating from 1626. Known as the Witch City for the Puritan witch trials of 1692.
Salem was also a major maritime seaport opening trade with the Far East.
That trade generated wealth that resulted in a living museum of architectural treasures. While preserving much of its past, Salem remains a vibrant evolving city.
