Please join us in celebrating the 125th anniversary of the day Mr. Walter Scott Dickson gifted the beautiful High Victorian Gothic stone chapel and attached conservatory to the City of Salem in memory of his wife, Georgia. This event is free and open to the public, so, please – bring a friend! (Or two, or three…)
We will be highlighting the story of Mr. Dickson as well as delving into the history of the Dickson Memorial Chapel and Conservatory. If you’ve never heard the story before of how a loving husband envisioned and brought to life an eternal showing of his love for his bride, Georgia, then please come! The Chapel will be open from 10:00AM through 1:00PM for viewing with the speakers beginning at 10:30AM.
We will have some items for sale to aid in our fundraising efforts toward the restoration of the Dickson Memorial Chapel and Conservatory. There will be two oil paintings featuring scenes from within the cemetery available, as well as historic postcards, nature photo cards, DVDs from past tours, t-shirts (long and short sleeve), ball caps, and more for sale and/or silent auction. General photos of these items can be seen at our Items for Sale link (also accessible from the link at the top of our home page).
