Salem

The charming town of Salem, situated in the heart of Southeastern Connecticut, is a rural bedroom community with easy access to nearby metropolitan areas.

Situated in the heart of Southeastern Connecticut, Salem is a low-key, rural New London County community centrally located on the historic Governor’s Highway. The town was incorporated in 1819 from lands of Colchester, Montville and Lyme and encompasses about 30 square miles. This quiet bedroom community is home to 4,200 residents who contribute to the region’s arts, education, technology and manufacturing centers.

Those who reside in Salem covet the community’s relaxed lifestyle and scenic countryside dotted with farms, fields, woodlands and recreational facilities. Commuters enjoy easy access to major highways and state roads leading to major metropolitan areas including Willimantic, New London and Norwich and Hartford.

Community members enjoy a variety of local clubs and organizations, including the Adventure Club, Salem Historical Society, VFW, Friends of the Library, Salem Seniors, Salem Mom’s Club, Boy/Girl Scouts and Salem Land Trust.

Salem also offers a wide variety of recreation opportunities for residents through its myriad town-sponsored programs and facilities which promote not only a strong sense of community but an active and healthy lifestyle.

Salem once had several schoolhouses within its borders, one of which still stands on White Birch Road. In response to a growing student population, the Salem School was built in 1940 and expanded over the decades. Students attend Salem Elementary School (K-8) and the Regional Multi-Cultural Magnet School in New London for grades K-5. High School students have the option of attending East Lyme High School or one of several neighboring technical high schools or magnet schools.

Residents treasure their town’s heritage, and several sites are listed on the National Register of Historic Places, including the circa 1835 Abel H. Fish House, Salem Historic District, Ebenezer Tiffany House and the 150-acre Woodbridge Farm.
