Welcome to Historic Salem Indiana!

Salem is located in scenic Southern Indiana just 35 miles north of Louisville, Kentucky and less than 100 miles south of Indianapolis, Indiana. Salem is a great place to live and make a living. We have high achieving public schools, and a wide variety of community activities. Salem also has a strong and diverse economic base. If you're a visitor to Salem, we hope you will take note of our many unique and historic destinations. As a city, Salem has retained much of its small town flavor, a flavor that is enhanced by the city’s tree-lined streets, stately old homes and a friendly atmosphere that has been nurtured and handed down through the generations.


Water Advisory Notice

It was reported by local media that Salem is currently under a boil water advisory. That is incorrect. In fact, East Washington Rural Water is under a boil water advisory. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact our water office at 883-3937.
