Inscription.  The Salem Town Hall was Salem's last municipal building before the Town's consolidation with Winston in 1913. The last of Salem's town halls to remain standing, the building was designed by the prominent local architect Willard C. Northup and features the Italianate style as well as local Moravian architectural influences. The 1912 Salem Town Hall expresses the pride and development of Salem in the year before its consolidation with the city of Winston. After the two towns merged, the building continued in use for over fifty years as one of Winston-Salem's most important fire stations. Listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1983.
