I did this walking tour but found I got more information about the houses by taking the Salem Trolley. The trolley goes down some but not all the same streets. A lot of this area has become overgrown and most of the houses were covered with trees making it very difficult to see and impossible to get a nice picture. Most of the housed are privately owned so the Historical Society can not do anything about the condition but the city should consider helping save the area by figuring out a way to divert the traffic from this area making it a more desireable place to live. There were a number of houses for sale most likely for that reason as well as the HUGE cost of repairing the houses since they are most likely covered in lead paint. It is sad to see this district so ill cared for.
