The 2014 Salem Guide celebrates Salem's spice trade and culinary history and commemorates the centennial of the Great Salem Fire. A resource for visitors from near and far, the Guide also features a calendar of annual events, walking map, and business listings.
Continuing its theme, "Great Stories Begin Here," Destination Salem is telling Salem's culinary stories and connecting food to the seaport's rich history. Food superstitions of the 17th-century, including the Salem Witch Trials, and the Great Age of Sail, when Salem sea captains were the first to open the spice trade to the Indian Ocean, are profiled.
In commemoration of the Great Salem Fire of 1914, the story of the fire, and its significance to firefighting, is also featured. Additional information on the Fire, Salem's culinary and cultural events, and business listings are available onSalem.org. A digital flipbook of the 2014 Guide will be available on Salem.org/Guide at the end of February.
Destination Salem will be presenting the 2014 Guide and confirming its 2014 Board of Directors at its annual meeting on Thursday, March 13 at 8:30 AM at the Salem Five Community Room, 210 Essex Street, Salem. All are welcome to the meeting, and those planning to attend are asked to RSVP to email@example.com.
