It Happened in Salem



On the anniversary
of a sad event,
the assassination
on Dealey Plaza
in Dallas TX
of President Kennedy...


Twenty-three years later,
right here in Salem,
on Center St.,
in this very building,
on a cold,
rainy,
wintry,
November day,
a very happy event
quicker than expected,
MUCH quicker,

22 years ago...





Our precious son was born! He had his Mom's (formerly) copper-colored hair (and probably had a thing or two to do with it turning gray!). But we love you son!!

The building is the former maternity annex of Salem General Hospital located on east Center St. It was closed 6 months later and birthing was moved to more modern facilities in the hospital's new addition on Winter St. It underwent remodeling and is now part of the rehabilitation center.

Thanks all. We had fun celebrating his and mine today!
