SALEM COMMONS


Salem Common Historic District is a historic district bounded roughly by Bridge, Derby, and St. Peter’s streets, as well as Collins Cove in Salem, Massachusetts, United States. The Common was established in 1667, and during this period it was partially a swamp. Until 1800, there was no enclosing fence, allowing livestock to freely roam across it. The current wrought iron fence around the Common was built in 1850 and has undergone restoration.
