Salem Historical Society member and former trustee, Jen Ratliff has dedicated herself to uncovering and sharing the forgotten stories of our collective past. Her most recent focus is Salem’s Forgotten Almshouse Burial Ground – “Salem is often celebrated for its history of millionaire merchants and their mansions, but there is another side to the city’s past, that of Salem’s poorest residents: the aged, disabled, ill, or transient, that were relegated to a harsh life at the City Almshouse.” This is a virtual event
