Salem is derived from the Hebrew word Shalom, and the Arabic word Salam both meaning peace. Historically, Salem has been nicknamed the Cherry City, because of the importance of the local cherry growing industry.
The first cherry festival in Salem was held in 1903. In the following decades, the event briefly became an annual event, with parades and the election of a cherry queen, but was disbanded after World War I. It was revived briefly as the Salem Cherryland Festival for several years in the late 1940s.
