SALEM, TX [#2] (FREESTONE COUNTY)
SALEM, TEXAS [#2] (Freestone County). Salem is off Farm Road 489 three miles west of Dew in south central Freestone County. In 1893 twenty-five black students were enrolled in the community school. Salem also had the Salem Church and the Negro Masonic Lodge no. 29. In the 1930s a church, a cemetery, a school, and a number of dwellings were in the area, and in the 1960s the church, cemetery, and a few dwellings remained. By the late 1980s, however, only the church and cemetery marked the site on maps.
