This year’s 34th Yuletide Tour of Historic Salem takes place on December 4, 2021 from 1pm-6pm.
Salem City’s Parade down Broadway begins at 11am and a tree lighting following the tour at the Old Courthouse.
This year’s tour is dedicated to the brave firefighters and Canteen 6 of Salem County. As a community we honor these brave men and women who serve with heroism and selflessness. We see the endless volunteer hours you grant us as you face danger head on. True to your commitment and beliefs as you exhibit a brotherhood that’s an example of love and care for one another. The first fire company was established in Salem City in 1749 and has been actively portraying loyalty to the citizens of Salem ever since. We salute you and are proud to call you friends. John 15:13 Greater love hath no man than this that a man lay down his life for his friends. During the tour please stop by the Salem Fire Museum which houses artifacts from over 200 years of fire service in Salem City and surrounding communities. You can view items like the 1847 John Agnew Columbian Hand Pumper, the ornate boiler exhaust from the 1878 Silsby Steamer, old helmets, uniforms, speaking trumpets, nozzles and the like.
Historic Salem, NJ is the oldest permanent English-speaking settlement in the Delaware Valley. John Fenwick, an English Quaker, brought the first colonists to this place in 1675, initiating settlement of West Jersey, the first Quaker colony in North America. He named his colony “Salem,” meaning “peace,” and laid out the first streets of “New Salem”: Bridge, Fenwick and Wharf Streets, today known as Market Street and East and West Broadway. Salem City remains the county seat of Salem County, and its streetscapes reflect the history of the people and place. Both Broadway and Market Street are listed as historic districts on the New Jersey State and National Registers of Historic Places.
