Salem City Hall gets copper skylights

SALEM — The first phase of renovations to City Hall wrapped up this week with the installation of copper skylights and vents on the roof of the historic building.

A large crane was needed to lift the material to the top of the 1838 granite and brick building on Washington Street.

The repairs to the leaky roof are being done in the first phase of a $2 million restoration that began last fall. The copper skylights will replace old skylights that leaked and let in only partial light, an official said.

Windows and exterior masonry work will start this spring.
