To preserve and advance the culture and history of West Salem and surrounding areas.

Description
The West Salem Historical Society preserves and advances the culture and history of the West Salem area. To fulfill this purpose the Hamlin Garland Homestead, the Palmer-Gullickson-Octagon House, and the Palmer-Lewis-Octagon house are used as a center for cultural events and local history study. It is the hope that these houses will become a living testimony to the pioneer spirit fostering our American heritage and contributing to our o...wn growth as a community.
