    On June 25, 1914 a devastating fire ignited on Boston Street in Blubber Hollow, the leather manufacturing district of Salem. Over the course of two days, this massive fire destroyed 1,376 buildings and left 18,000 people, almost half of Salem's population, homeless and many without jobs. The City of Salem will commemorate the centennial of the Great Salem Fire in June of 2014 with a Symposium, walking tours, lectures, photography exhibits, and more.
