Salem, OR

The Road Travel CrewComment

Salem is the capital of Oregon state. The area was called Chemeketa by Native Americans which means "meeting or resting place".  The name Salem most likely taken from Salem, Massachusetts, in biblical reference it means "city of peace".  Though there were many fights for numerous names from Chemeketa to Corvalis to Valena.  With so many attempts to adjust the name the House indefinitely postponed to bills and the name has stayed the same since.
