About Salem History Matters

Deb Meaghers and Christy Van Heukelem share their passion for mid-Willamette Valley history and engage listeners in the value of preserving and blending our rich historic legacy into our contemporary lives. Interviews with area historians, authors, historic property owners, neighbors in our historic districts, curators of local museums, commercial building owners and renovators offer insight into why preserving, living and working in our historic resources are so integral to our sense of community. Adding to the fabric of our heritage quilt are the “Spotlight on History” segments which highlight specific areas of our history, and the “Yesterday’s Voices” segments where our long-time residents share their memories of their lives in the Salem area.
