Welcome to SESNA!

Founded on March 1, 1976, Southeast Salem Neighborhood Association encompasses a beautiful, historic part of Salem. It contains 4 parks, State Offices, Salem-Keizer School Offices, Bush Elementary School, Richmond Elementary School, Tokyo International University of America, Mission Mill Museum, about 500 businesses, 4 churches, historic buildings, and over 2,000 households dating from the late 1800s to the present (see Pics).
