SOUTH CENTRAL SALEM
South Central Salem is one of the most beautiful and historic areas of Salem. SCAN includes the Gaiety Hill/Bush's Pasture Park Historic District, one of only four historic districts in the city. There are three house museums in SCAN: the Bush House, Deepwood and Gaiety Hollow. Pringle Creek winds its way though SCAN on its way to the Willamette River. The lovely Fairmount Hill neighborhood is the location of Mahonia Hall, the Oregon Governor's mansion. SCAN has many historic houses — too many to list here. But the SHINE on Salem website presents a good tour of many of the homes in the Gaiety Hill/Bush's Pasture Park Historic District. SCAN works hard to preserve the beauty and character and historic significance of South Central Salem.
