Since 2013, Friends of Old Main volunteers have worked to transform the Old Main schoolhouse, which once housed Salem Public Schools, into a vibrant landmark for Fulton County. Funds raised from the concerts and other events are used to continue schoolhouse renovations.

Potential and current uses for the building include the creation of a Fulton County museum to house historical information and memorabilia, an art gallery and art classes, and a performance venue for theatrical productions, concerts and family activities. Other concepts include a community garden, herb garden, canning kitchen, and non-profit organization meeting and activity space.

The Friends of Old Main is a nonprofit organization. Contributions to the organization are tax deductible to the extent of the law.
