After 65 years of research and investigation, the Town of Salem is well documented however ongoing research continues to uncover new information or cause us to reevaluate our understanding. Basic information about the buildings, landscape, and archaeological resources is available on this website and in our library. More information is also available through our published guidebooks. The 2017 National Historic Landmark nomination provides comprehensive contexts and inventories of the larger historic resource. As part of how the museum carries out restoration within the historic district, we publish a guide for residents on the appropriate treatment of their historic properties in the museum area.
