3,000 Impressions




Amanda McGregor, reporter for The Salem News, writes on the impact Gordon College is having in Salem through the Institute of Public History.

The Salem News - As many as 3,000 people visited Pioneer Village during the summer and fall, breathing life back into the city’s replica 17th-century historic settlement that had been shuttered since 2003.
Meanwhile, the city’s landmark Old Town Hall in Derby Square has seen more use as a rental facility and continues to undergo renovations. The increased activity and improvements at both city-owned properties are being driven by the Gordon College Institute for Public History, a nonprofit, which this summer entered its second year of a five-year lease.
