Description:
This lithograph is based on an original drawing of Salem Square done about 1839 by the John Vogler’s only son Elias. Sometime in the early 1840’s the drawing was lithographed in Philadelphia. This particular print descended in the Vogler family and may have hung in the family’s home on Main Street.

This print is one of the most detailed depictions of Salem Square during the congregational era. It was instrumental in the planning for the re-planting of the square after the tornado on May 5,1989.
