    Aged Salem Residence to Fall
Victim to Parking Space Need
One more of Salem's old-time residences along State street,
used for some years as a rooming house known as Washington
hotel, is due to yield this week to the encroachment of the auto
mobile age. An undetermined number of years older than this cen
tury, the building, at 558 State st- is to be replaced by a parking lot.
Last transaction on the 41 by 150-foot property was Aug. 6,
has rented the building for hotel
purposes, and previous to that it
was operated for approximately
a decade by G. D. Bun tin. A
small lunch stand occupies, a leas
ed corner of the lot and will not
be disturbed. Brown said.
The proposed parking lot will
be operated by his brother, Wer
ner Brown, who owns the ad
joining service station and park
ing lot. The entire quarter block
is owned by the estate of Wil
liam Brown, whose residence
occupied the present service sta
tion site.
