More Information

Salem was settled in the 1700s and, by the time of its incorporation as a town in 1802, was a busy stop along the Great Road from Virginia through Tennessee to Kentucky. Davy Crockett, Louis Philippe (a future king of France), and Andrew Jackson were known to have traveled the route and patronized Salem’s inns and taverns. Two homes along the road—Old Castle and Preston Place—are featured in this look at life in the 1800s. The exhibit is curated by Alex Burke and generously sponsored by Salem VA Credit Union
