Old Town Hall getting a paint job

SALEM — Old Town Hall is getting a fresh coat of paint.

It’s the first time the building has undergone a project of this scope in roughly 40 years, according to Gordon College, which leases and manages the building. The work was funded by a donor.

Built in 1816/17, the Federal-style building housed city offices until 1837 and is Salem’s earliest surviving municipal structure. Gordon College stages its “Cry Innocent” production here and runs an exhibit of Salem history on the first floor. It also rents the hall out for functions.
