Salem Family YMCA is home to over 200 programs that serve thousands of people in our community.
Just like our tag line promises, YMCA programs directly impact the entire community through strengthening kids, families and adults.
You're invited to become part of our non-profit association, and part of our success.
The Salem Family YMCA has served its members well in matters of "Spirit, Mind, and Body" for more than a century, making a lasting impact on the Salem community at large, meeting special needs and coming up with innovative programs for the future.
Services to our community increased as the physical facilities grew over the years past.
On May 4, 1892, the Y opened its first quarters on the second floor of the Patton Block on the south side of State Street, near Commercial Street.
By 1900, it had moved several times: to a second home in the Gray Building at Liberty & State; to the upper floor of J.C. Brown Hardware, 120 North Commercial; to the Hughes Building on the south side of State near High.
On December 24, 1901, the Y was in a building it owned at Commercial and Chemeketa.
In about 1910, an indoor pool, Salem's first, was built on the first floor.
A gym and other club areas occupied the other floors.
