Alleyway Activation

Alleyway Activation

On a rainy day in June Stand Up For Salem dedicated our new mural painted by mural painter, Sam Donovan, Salem County resident and mural artist. The 4 panel mural shows some of Salem’s notable people and memories from the 16, 17, 18 and 1900's including the covered bridge on Rte. 45, John Rock, the Goodwin home and one of the sisters. Thanks artist Sam Donovan!

To make it even more memorable, SUFS recently received a grant from the Gloucester Salem Counties Board of Realtors to do an Alleyway Activation in the space as well.

Over the next few months the SUFS design committee will be purchasing string lights for the space, tables and chairs and an outdoor movie screen to host outdoor movie nights.

10 Most Endangered Historic Places in New Jersey 2016

East Broadway was recently listed by Preservation New Jersey as one of the 10 most endangered historic sites in the state. There are over twenty vacant buildings in the 2/3 of a mile stretch, most with important historic eighteenth and nineteenth century architecture including a collection of Federal-style houses.

It is also home to two historically important churches; Mount Hope, which is the oldest piece of property owned by an African-American organization in Salem County and one of the oldest in the state, and Mt. Pisgah A.M.E. the oldest continuously operating A.M.E. (African Methodist Episcopal) church in the United States.
