Structure Intact - Salem Electric Light Company, Power House
One of three buildings intact after the fire, the Salem Electric Light Company Power House was protected from the fire due to sixteen-inch concrete walls, a roof supported with steel trusses, and a concrete floor. As with Storehouse No. 1 on the Naumkeag complex, the Power House also had fireproof shutters. Located on Peabody Street and South River Street, to the east of Lafayette Street, the plant reopened and furnished electric power to the city of Salem on June 26.
