The City of Salem and the Salem Preservation Partners have collaborated on a new exhibition for Preservation in a Changing Climate, opening April 1, 2022, on the first floor of the City Hall Annex. The exhibition focuses on efforts to combat climate change in our local community with information on environmental impacts on historic buildings, landscapes, and neighborhoods in Salem.
The opening of this exhibit also serves as the kick-off event to the Preservation in a Changing Climate conference, held annually in Salem each fall. This year’s conference runs September 12-13, 2022 and will discuss preservation strategies on a local, regional, and national level that can help address climate change and its impact on historic buildings and resources.
“Salem is forward-looking and pro-active in our approaches to managing the local impacts of global climate change, says Mayor Driscoll, “As a historic community, especially, we strive to be intentional and thoughtful in how we plan and prepare for these challenges. Preservation in a Changing Climate, both the exhibit and the conference, help ensure that we continue to lead on this issue for future generations of Salem residents.”
View the exhibit on the first floor at 98 Washington Street during regular City Hall Annex hours:
- Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays: 8:00 am-4:00 pm
- Thursdays: 8:00 am-7:00 pm
- Fridays: 8:00 am-12:00 pm
