About Salem

The city is home to the Salem Red Sox, a minor league baseball team which plays at George Wright Memorial Field. The Salem Ferry Fore River Transportation District provides scheduled service from the North Shore to Boston's Long Wharf. Salem was founded in 1626 by Samuel Parris and Peter Palfrey, two of its original seven founders (the other five being Francis Juggeridge, John Turner Jr., Ephraim Buxton Sr., William White Sr., and Roger Conant). It was one of the first towns chartered in Massachusetts Bay Colony (1629), when it was settled initially as part of Dorchester County; until 1692-93 it would be under control of neighboring Essex County. The settlement took its name from Jerusalem: "Jerusalem" in Hebrew means "City of Peace", and that is what the Puritans wanted their colony to be—a place where people could worship God without persecution or distraction.
