Economic Development

It is easy to see when one takes a look at Salem why it is often compared with cities twice its size.  Salem is a desirable family location; enjoys educational excellence attributed to the number of above average students; medical facilities reach beyond the norm in service and quality; and recreational and cultural opportunities allow the pursuit of sport, art and leisure.

Only a ninety minute drive from St. Louis, Missouri, with its museums, zoo, major entertainment facilities, sports centers and an international airport.  Salem can literally touch the world from its strategic location in Southern Illinois.
