Welcome to Salem, South Carolina, the diamond of the upstate!
Salem sits in the North East corner of Oconee County, just off Highway 11, and serves as the gateway to Lakes Jocassee and Keowee. Our little town is much more than the area inside of its town limits. We pride ourselves in being a community not just a town. The Salem community abounds in nature, wildlife, scenic vistas, opportunities for outdoor recreation, hunting and fishing, and just good ol’ down home good folks.
On behalf of the Mayor, Town Council, Town Employees and all the residents of the Salem community, I hope you will take the time to browse through this official website for the Town of Salem, South Carolina.
Whether you are a current resident, a potential resident or a future visitor, let us know what we can do for you! Salem has a strong historical background, but a bright outlook for the future – our citizens value the past, while working hard to prepare for the future.
