Cherokee Commemoration Event

Postponed until October, 2022 due to travel restrictions for Cherokee Nation representatives.

A plaque honoring the twelve Cherokee girls who attended Salem in the 1820s and 30s will be dedicated near South Residence Hall, the original Salem Girls’ Boarding School building where the Cherokee girls lived. Representatives of the Cherokee Nation and descendants of the students will be in attendance. The commemoration will include exhibits of relevant historic documents and artifacts. Salem is working toward having the campus designated as a stop on the National Park Service Trail of Tears.
