Salem, Massachusetts is one of those quaint New England villages that oozes beautiful historic homes! It's like a giant Cat's Meow Village!
I designed this Salem Town Hall in collaboration with @purelysalem who shares his love of all things Salem in his Instagram feed. You can find Matt there, say hello and tell him I sent you.

32 Derby Square, Salem, Massachusetts
This Town Hall sits on land once owned by Col. William Browne, confiscated by the Massachusetts legislature, given to Elias Hasket Derby, transferred to John Derby III and Benjamin Pickman, Jr, who finally donated it to the town of Salem in 1816 with a requirement that a Town Hall and Market House be built there. This building stopped being the center of local government in 1836/37 when a new City Hall was built.
This Town Hall was the cornerstone of the Derby Square redevelopment program started in the mid-1970s, and it’s the oldest existing municipal building in Salem. Today, it is used as a public art space and rented for various events.
Wouldn't this whole Salem Christmas Collection look cute tucked within your holiday decor?
How about: on the mantle, tabletop centerpiece, under the tree, or perched on wainscoting or a windowsill.
Our workshop of 15 crew members handcrafts this and all our Cat's Meows in Wooster, Ohio, which is an 11-hour drive due west of Salem.
We craft it from 3/4" thick wood with all the colorful details on the front and a story on the back.
Look for Casper, my black cat mascot hiding in a pile of snow by the steps.
