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.  The Grant Neighborhood Association was founded  February 2, 1976 and encompasses the smallest area of any of the nineteen Salem Neighborhoods. 

There are 5 sections of Grant neighborhood as shown on the map at left. It is the goal of GNA to have board representation from all of the sections. We're almost there!
