What We Do
The Salem Area Historical Society is a community resource for collecting and preserving the history of the area and for educating the general public about the history of this area. SAHS holds seven historic presentations annually to educate the public about items of historical or local interest. Presentation topics have included: Automotive Industry Topics (Henry Ford, Billy Durant, Walter Chrysler, Ford Village Industries), Yankee Air Museum, Beatrix Potter, Lewis Family, Salem Farming, Genealogy Research, Gravestone Restoration, Salem/Plymouth Train Wreck, Grand Hotel, 24th Michigan Infantry, Female Soldiers in the Civil War, and Gov. Mason. Also, the society is in the process of digitizing its archives, which are open for review by the general public. As these archives are digitized, a listing of them is being made available on the SAHS Website of www.SAHSHistory.org
