Methodist Mission Parsonage, 1313 Mill Street SE, (NR)

The Methodist Mission parsonage of the 1840s was designed to be divided into apartments for missionaries. Originally located where the water tower is now on Mission Mill Museum Property (this may be the parsonage in original location), it was moved to 13th and Ferry Streets. In 1963 it was moved to its present location on the museum property. It is now, like the Jason Lee house renovated and furnished with items similar to those of the pioneer time in Salem. It has been moved to this location. Photographs in its earlier location are found here.(SESNA)
