A Gazetteer for the United States and Canada
Welcome to Salem ...
Although we found mention of Salem during our research, we have little information about it.<1> We believe that Salem had a post office at one time. We have done a cursory search and haven't been able to find any evidence that the community still exists..
While we are confident that Salem was located in Jewell County, we don't know its actual location within the county.
We've added Salem to our Gazetteer with the hope that we can develop more information. We would especially like to find the location of Salem - knowing its coordinates, we can explore things like its relationship to neighboring communities, nearby cemeteries, etc. If you can help us with Salem, please Contact Us.
When the people of Salem refer to themselves (known as a demonym), they frequently use Salemite<2>
Time Zone: The area where we believe that Salem might be (or was) located is in the Central Time Zone (CST/CDT) and observes daylight saving time
We believe that Salem would be found within the (785) area code.
