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.
