SHINE is a look backward from the present to Salem's 1860 charter. In each year we have four sections: glimpses of what was happening around the world, a special event in Salem, what you see when you visit that site today, and other Salem events of interest that year.

A Salem Landmark Passing into History

In case you missed it in the Statesman Journal, here's a photo of the 1920s Fry Warehouse as demolition begins. The developer plans to create an interpretive marker on the site to tell the story of this landmark. The former Boise-Cascade property downtown, of which this is a part, will be redeveloped for retail, condos, community activities and to open Pringle Creek as it enters the Willamette. Watch for news here!
