MCHS Historic Marker, Liberty Street & Mill Creek NE, (D)

Put in place on September 21, 1960, this marker honored both the state’s 100th anniversary in 1959 and the founding of the city of Salem by Jason Lee. He constructed a sawmill and dam here in 1840 and his home nearby a year later. The town grew up around this "high ground” along the creek.
This Discovery is not a designated Salem historic property.
