What Bert Has To Say About Salem Metro Area


Salem is the state capital and an agricultural center. State government buildings dominate a small but attractive and progressive downtown core. Surrounding built-up areas are unremarkable. Local agriculture includes orchards, fruits, grapes, nursery stock, and vegetables; the type of agriculture and rolling, moist terrain make for an attractive landscape.
