Becoming Historic

Here is Ron Cooper's beautiful portrait of Deepwood Estate as it looks in weather like we are having now. It is one of our most popular historic properties for both visitors and residents.

Our December SHN newsletter, posted today, describes how local properties may qualify for historic designation and explains the necessary Design Review by our Historic Landmarks Commission before external alterations are made to these properties.

Tell us about your Salem historic property or your experience in local historic preservation.

As indicated, the design review process is meant to protect the character and quality of our historic neighborhoods, which is why we like to live there, right! So, thanks for providing some easy to understand information about how it works.
