Salem, MassachusettsPhotos, maps and news from Salem, Massachusetts.Updated February 28, 2018.

Salem is a historic, coastal city in Essex County, Massachusetts, in the United States, located on Massachusetts' North Shore. It is a New England bedrock of history and is considered one of the most significant seaports in Puritan American history. The city's reported population was 41,340 at the 2010 census. Salem and Lawrence were the county seats of Essex County, though the county government was abolished in 1999. The city is home to the House of the Seven Gables, Salem State University, Salem Willows Park, Pioneer Village, Salem Maritime National Historic Site, and the Peabody Essex Museum. It also features two historic residential neighborhoods, the Federal Street District and the Charter Street Historic District. Salem is a residential and tourist area which includes the neighborhoods of Salem Neck, Downtown Salem District, The Point, South Salem and North Salem, Witchcraft Heights, Pickering Wharf, and the McIntire Historic District (named after Salem's famous architect and carver Samuel McIntire). Much of the city's cultural identity reflects its role as the location of the infamous Salem witch trials of 1692, as featured in Arthur Miller's The Crucible. Police cars are adorned with witch logos, a local public elementary school is known as Witchcraft Heights, the Salem High School athletic teams are named the Witches, and Gallows Hill—originally believed to be the site of numerous public hangings—is currently used as a playing field for various sports. Tourists know Salem as a mix of important historical sites and a vibrant downtown that has more than 60 restaurants, cafes, and coffee shops. In 2012, the Retailers Association of Massachusetts chose Salem for their inaugural "Best Shopping District" award. President Barack Obama signed executive order HR1339 on January 10, 2013, designating Salem as the birthplace of the U.S. National Guard. More than one million tourists from all around the world visit Salem annually, bringing in at least $100 million in spending each year. More than 250,000 people visited Salem over Halloween weekend in 2016.
