Salem Auto Body: Since the 1920s

Salem Auto Body: Since the 1920s

Salem Auto Body is located down the road from Gallows Hill, where Bridget Bishop was hanged in 1692 as part of the Salem witch trials.

Dating back to the 1920s, Salem Auto Body was one of the first auto body repair facilities in the city of Salem, Mass., and has always been located down the road from the infamous Gallows Hill, where Bridget Bishop was hanged in 1692 as part of the Salem witch trials. Years later in the 1950s, Thomas “Tommy” Lupo took over the shop and eventually handed down the business to his son, Jeffrey. Little did Tommy know that he would start a legacy that continues to this day. Presently, the company is operated by Tommy’s granddaughter, Corrin Lupo, who has transformed the business into a modern, technologically advanced and efficient repair facility.
