South East Salem Neighborhood Association (SESNA)

If you live, work, or own property in the South East Neighborhood Association, you’re already a member. SESNA is located in a beautiful, historic area of Salem and was designated as Salem’s second Heritage Neighborhood by the Salem Historic Landmarks Commission in 2015. The neighbors work together to enhance the quality of life, beauty and safety of the neighborhood. Help make a difference where you live.

SESNA is roughly bordered by State Street on the North, I-5 on the East; from I-5 it goes West along Mission Street, South on 25th, Southwest along Madrona Avenue, Northwest along the South Pacific Railroad tracks, West on McGilchrist Street, then meanders close to 12th Street North until Mission where it goes Northerly along 12th Street until it hits State Street again.

In addition to its parks and schools, SESNA contains State Offices, Salem-Keizer School Offices, Willamette Heritage Center, Salem Train Station and Freight Depot, about 500 businesses, four churches, historic buildings, and over 2,000 households dating from the late 1800s.
