Description
 
Refugees from Poland first came to Salem in the 1880s when the former
maritime port became a leading industrial center. These immigrants often
arrived with little more than the clothes on their backs and worked
some of the most dangerous factory jobs. However, despite limited
knowledge of the English language and American customs, they persevered
to improve their lives and the lives of their children. The Polish
Community of Salem chronicles the social, economic, and cultural
transitions that took place as Polish immigrants started life
anew in Salem, created a vibrant community, gained US citizenship, and
assimilated into American society.
