Description of John Bertram House
Situated in the historic area of Salem Common in Salem, John Bertram House is a part of the John Bertram Homes, a selection of locations founded by Salem sea captain and philanthropist John Bertram. First opened in 1990, our community was the first free-standing assisted living community in Massachusetts. The physical location of our community is only a short walk from area shops, dining and entertainment.
