Episode 69 — Salem in 1950

Show Notes

1950This week on Your Salem Through the Years, Jim and Virginia take a look back to Salem in 1950. In 1950, post-war prosperity meant more cars and greater need for downtown parking. Because of this, in 1950 the historic Holman Building, where the Oregon Legislature met after the first Capitol building in Salem burned down, was torn down and replaced by Salem's first parking structure.
