Salem in 1630:Pioneer Village
Built in 1930 to mark the tercentennial of
Massachusetts, Pioneer Village is America's first
living history museum. The village sits on three
acres of land and contains various examples of
colonial architecture: dugouts, wigwams, thatched
roof cottages, and the Governor's Faire House.
Culinary and medicinal gardens and a blacksmith
shop further interpret early 17th-century colonial life.
Pioneer Village is nestled between the woods and
the ocean, a ten minute drive from downtown, in
Salem's Forest River Park. Visit the villages website here.
