Salem Commercial School
Founded in 1890, the Salem Commercial School started as a small class held at the home of Miss E. A. Tibbetts, its first principal.
It later moved to 5,000 square foot of space in the Peabody Building on Washington St. Some of the subjects were typewriting, shorthand, bookkeeping,
arithmetic and law.
