Jason Lee Memorial Church, 820 Jefferson Street NE, (LL)

This 1912 stone church was named for the Methodist founder of Salem. Its exterior is intact to its original design, but the interior has been renovated due to fire in 1926 and later remodeling. The church had many prominent North Salem citizens as members. Many senior citizens remember that from 1918 to 1942 the church operated a restaurant at the State Fair that was a popular attraction. In 1947 an additional church school wing was added on the east side of the building. For construction photograph circa 1909.
