Located at the north end of downtown Salem, Grant Neighborhood borders the  Capitol Mall and encompasses a beautiful, historic part of Salem. Nearly  all of our homes and buildings date to between about 1900 and 1940. Grant  was the first to be designated a Heritage Neighborhood by the Salem Historic  Landmarks Commission. We have one neighborhood park, Grant Park, which is  adjacent to Grant Community School. Grant Community School is a dual  language immersion school for pre-K through 5th grade.  Our neighborhood  boasts about 150 businesses, six churches, numerous historic buildings,  and about 1275 households. The Grant Neighborhood Association was founded  February 2, 1976 and encompasses the smallest area of any of the nineteen Salem Neighborhoods.
