The 2009 Legacy Tour, sponsored by Historic Salem, Inc.,  steps back in history, featuring 18th and 19th century homes in the Salem Common Neighborhood.  A Candlelight Tour will begin Friday, December 4, from 5:30 – 7:30 pm.  On Saturday, December 5, the tour will be open from 10:00 am – 4:30 pm, and on Sunday, December 6, from 11:30 am – 4:30 pm.  There is a Snow Date: Saturday, December 12, from 10:00 am to 4:30 pm.

It’s Historic Salem’s 65th anniversary, and Christmas in Salem’s 30th holiday house tour. What better way to mark these milestones than with a Christmas house tour that includes historically significant sites on or near this year’s route, which is centered around the Salem Common neighborhood.

Christmas in Salem will indeed be bigger and better than ever, starting with this website to let you know all about tour features in advance. And there’s lots to share, including information about other holiday events taking place in Salem. Christmas in Salem is more than a house tour…it’s an entire month of fabulous holiday fun.  For questions and more information, call 978-745-0799, or email  Photo below of Salem Common courtesy of Trip Mason Photography.
