Minister who came to Naumkeag in or around 1629, and according to legend, changed the Indian name of the place to either Shalom or Salaam (depending on which historian you believe). This was then eventually Anglicized to "Salem" meaning the "City of Peace". (There is no known derivation of Salem being once called "Jerusalem" and then shortened.).
