Kimberley Driscoll, Mayor

Welcome to the City of Salem’s Official Website! Whether you are a resident, visitor, or entrepreneur, here you will find a wealth of useful information about our waterfront community. Salem is known for its rich maritime history, as being the birthplace of the National Guard and for the infamous Witchcraft Trials of 1692. Salem is also a vibrant, pedestrian-friendly City where its residents, and over a million tourists annually, can easily visit historic architecture, unique attractions, world-famous museums, and an eclectic mix of shops and dining options. And, with easy access to public transportation - including our own ferry direct to Boston - Salem is a great city to live, work, study, and play. I invite you to discover all that Salem has to offer!
