“S. Elm St (Trade) looking south from Bank St.”

'S. Elm St (Trade) looking south from Bank St.'

John Ackermann, a cooper, buit this one-and-a-half story log house on Factory Row in 1822. Typical of early Salem houses–but unlike the later houses on Factory Row–it was built directly on the sidewalk. The house was reconstructed in 1985.

  1. I grew up on this street in the 50’s. The people that lived in the house at that time were the Ashbys. William Ashby and family. His son Earnest now lives in Columbia S.C. as of last count. I lived further down across from this house which was owned by the Railroad. My house was beside the chapel, although the chapel was not there in my time of growing up.

  2. I lived in the Ackermann house with my mother in the late 40’s early 50’s. We also lived in the house behind the Ackermann house with Nanny & Frenchie Caron in 1947, the New family lived across the street were the big trees are. I remember the Boles family, Bryants, Templeton. I started school at Central with a New son we are still friends today.That was Great neighborhood!!!
