THE EDUCATION BUILDING
On February 25, 1973 the congregation decided to build a separate educational unit at a cost of $100,000. On April 8 groundbreaking ceremonies were held with three of Salem’s older members turning the ground on a rainy Sunday. They were Mrs. Martha Matter and Mrs. Hannah Hoover, members; and Miss Ella Fisher, a non-member who attended over 18 years. The date stone was laid on September 9, along with the placing of the cooper box of mementos. The building was dedicated on October 28, 1973, with a final debt of approximately $40,000.
