Traveling south from St. Peter's, and having passed the turns to Woodlands and Olveston, is the village of Salem, close to Old Towne and the Old Road Beach. Salem also includes Friths, Flemmings and Happy Hill villages. Salem and the surrounding areas were temporarily evacuated in 1997, but officially re-occupied in 1998. Salem features several shops, a supermarket, a fast food eatery and several bars. Places of worship are well represented here, with Anglican, Roman Catholic, Methodist, Pentecostal and Seventh Day Adventist churches in the village; most were used as evacuation shelters during the height of the volcanic crisis, but have resumed their intended use as churches for quite some time, as new homes went up for relocated residents.
