Market Street Day 2015
Market Street Day on Saturday in Salem was a great success. The weather was beautiful, and lots of people came out for the food, events and, of course, the cars. Over 100 people came through the Historical Society! Thanks to all our volunteers and to everyone who stopped by. We look forward to having our doors open again next year.
