Save Our Station
Almost 25 years ago, you, as a valued member of Historic Salisbury Foundation, helped play a pivotal role in the preservation of this important Salisbury icon. You helped the Foundation purchase this historic landmark, saving it from demolition. You helped turn an eyesore into a crowning achievement. Since 1993 when the restored Salisbury Station re-opened, well over 500,000 people, including many school children, have marveled at its timeless beauty.
Bring your family to the Hall House Museum in December to enjoy beautiful Christmas displays. Swagged greenery, fruits and berries, antique toys, heirloom quilts and coverlets are all combined to transform Dr. Hall's house and transport visitors back in time. Each room will delight young and old alike and many have made the tour a part of their family holiday traditions. This year's theme is "Twas A Night Before Christmas."
Regular tours are held Saturday and Sunday, December 3, 4, 10, 11, 17, and 18 from 1:00 p.m. until 4:00 p.m. A special evening tour is held on Christmas Eve from 5:30 p.m. until 8:00 p.m. Admission for the weekend tours is $5 per person. Admission to the Christmas Eve Tour is by donation. The house is located at 226 South Jackson Street.
This Salisbury landmark residence was originally an 1820 two-story Federal style double-pile frame house used by the girl's department of Salisbury Academy. In 1859, Dr. Josephus Hall (1805-1873) added a two-story front porch with cast iron oak leaf and acorn ornamental openwork, a gateway arch, and square-edged clapboard. The front windows were also lengthened.
During the Civil War, Dr. Hall served as hospital surgeon and surgeon in charge at the Salisbury Confederate Prison. Between 1890 and 1910, the attic was enlarged with a high-hipped roof and dormers.
