Congratulations to the Salem Area Historical Society

The 2020 Pauline Walters Memorial Award winner was the Salem Area Historical Society. The award was used to create story boards that recalled “stories from the 1800’s and early 1900’s about the farming community and families of Salem Township.”  The panels are displayed in the Dickerson Barn, which is part of the Jarvis Stone School Historic District.
