City receives grant to document historic resources in South Salem!

In early 2019, the City will begin surveying the historic buildings, landscapes and objects of South Salem. With help from a preservation consultant, approximately 100 historic resources will be documented on inventory forms. When completed, these forms will include current photographs, historic images, architectural descriptions and historic significance statements. The project was partially funded by a Survey & Planning Grant from the Massachusetts Historical Commission. Planning Staff will be reaching out to residents in South Salem to provide information about the project and to seek historic images and information on buildings in the area.
