It's remarked on now! Here's a front-page piece in the paper. That's nice to see.
The Historic Mount Crest Abbey Mausoleum at City View Cemetery will celebrate its 100th anniversary with an open house this Saturday, Sunday and Monday. The celebration will coincide with the 34th annual Memorial Day ceremony at the cemetery on Monday.(Thanks to a commenter for flagging this last night!)
The public is invited to learn about Salem's history in walking tours that will allow guests to read narratives of 44 individuals interred at the mausoleum, including governors, congressmen, mayors and business owners, over the weekend starting Saturday, May 24, at 9 a.m.
