2 Founding Of Salem Village By Jarrod Bauldree & Anthony Graham

3 The Founding In 1623 a group of colonists attempted to set up a fishing establishment at Cape Ann, on the North Shore of Massachusetts. The project failed but a few men led by Roger Conant did not give up and in 1626 settled in Naumkeag, Christianized to Salem, in 1629

4 The Founding Naumkeag was an area previously named by Native Americans which literally translated to 'eel land' Naumkeag was renamed to Salem in 1629 (from Hebrew 'Shalom' or Arabic 'Salom', the words for peace in both languages.)

5 The Founding Ministers began arriving in 1629 and the job of church organization was underway. It was becoming apparent that Salem was separating off from the Church of England

6 The Founding Salem originally included much of the North Shore, including Marblehead, set off in 1649 Most of the accused in the Salem witch trials lived in nearby 'Salem Village', now Danvers. Salem Village also included Peabody and parts of present-day Beverly. Middleton, Topsfield, Wenham and Manchester-by-the- Sea, too, were once parts of Salem. 2C_Salem%2C_MA.jpg

7 The Founding Industries included tanneries, shoe factories and the Naumkeag Steam Cotton Company. Salem and its silting harbor were increasingly eclipsed by Boston and New York. Consequently, the city turned to manufacturing.
