Visit the Asahel Bush House. Built by Asahel Bush II in 1877-78 and occupied by members of his family for the next seventy-five years, the house tells the story of a family with deep roots in Salem’s history. Bush started the Oregon Statesman newspaper and the Ladd and Bush Bank in the late 19th century. Both businesses are still in operation today. Bush utilized the newspaper to promote political issues of the day such as slavery and prohibition. Ross Sutherland, Director of the Asahel Bush House, talks about this Victorian Style home’s history, and the impact the Bush family has had on Salem.
