Historic Salem

Trip Stop: 

The historic district of Salem extends from the waterfront well inland. While most of the old sea captains lived near the water, their employees built their homes away from the water. Many of them lived on Chestnut Street, which has been preserved as a registered National Historic Landmark. Some of the many things to see and do in historic Salem include the House of the Seven Gables, Derby Wharf, the tall ship Friendship, and Central Wharf, the Peabody Essex Museum, Salem 1630: Pioneer Village, and the Salem Witch Museum.
