Salem's tallest building, if you count just the 'building' part. This is about as 'high' as it gets in Salem. Built in 1927, the 11-story Capitol Center is surpassed in total height by the First United Methodist Church (measuring to the top of the spire). Thanks to Jon Hazen of and George Wilhelm and staff of Wilhelm Engineering, Inc. of Woodburn for setting the record straight.
