— United States Department of the Interior —Salemsgemeinde, the German Evangelical Lutheran Salem Congregation, was founded September 30, 1849 by German immigrants, many from Bavaria. The congregation dedicated this Gothic Revival style church June 16, 1850. That year the congregation built a new schoolhouse with instruction in German, and it became one of the first public schools in the area. The graveyard, "God's Acre," was established in 1851. The congregation built a new church in the village of Catonsville, dedicated in 1903, keeping this first home and graveyard. In 1977, Salem Congregation, along with community members, formed Historical Salem, Inc., leasing to this independent organization the building for restoration and historic preservation.
