“Walking Tours” provide leisurely occasions to enjoy the pleasures of Salem’s natural beauty and the historic character of our city. They introduce visitors to 4 of our historic neighborhoods, follow creeks in urban parks, cross the Willamette River on the Union Street Railroad Pedestrian Bridge and experience Salem’s the important place in Oregon History. These photo albums may be enjoyed online or as self-guided walks through the city.
Please contact us for any corrections. We also welcome additional information about these or other historic properties in the walks.
NOTE: There is a major alteration in the Riverfront Walking tour with the addition of the Peter Courtney Minto Island Bridge. After the landscaping is completed, we will redesign the tour to include this feature. Meanwhile, here is the new signage with bridge at upper right corner:
Here is a view of the bridge celebration on August 2, 2017:
