South Salem Stone School Mural
On Wednesday, October 28, 2015 at 6PM, SAHS dedicated the Dickerson Barn Mural. Gregg Bugala completed the second mural that was funded by a donatation to the SAHS by Lee Holland. This second mural consists of four panels recalling the 1830 to 1900 era of Salem and honors Meroë Allen Kaericher who led the acquisition of the Dickerson Barn by The Salem Area Historical Society in 1997 and Gilbert Terry who led the team that relocated the barn to SAHS property in 2007-8. These panels are hung on the interior side of the east doors of the Dickerson Barn so that when the doors are open the mural will be visible to those on the outside of the barn.
On Sunday, September 13th, 2015, the Salem Area Historical Society, owners of the Jarvis Stone School Local Historic District, held the South Salem Stone School Mural Dedication, which was well attended by family members of Don Riddering and Irene Lyke, past students and SAHS Members. Thanks to Lee Holland for the donation to SAHS that made the Mural possible and to Gregg Bugala, the Muralist, for the creative effort that resulted in this beautiful mural.
