Crystal Garden Ballroom, Liberty and Ferry Street SE, (D)

For more than twenty-five years, Salem area residents danced here on Wednesday and Saturday nights to some of the best-known bands in the nation. Modern dancing was on the main floor and old time polkas, schottishes and two-steps upstairs. Ballroom dancing declined in popularity and the last “old time dance” was held in 1964.
