The IKE Box is a favorite local to Salem coffee shop, and so much more than a coffee shop. Built 100 years ago as a funeral home, it has a storied history and quirky charm. Operated since 2004 by the non-profit Isaac’s Room, it has a noble purpose and, we believe, a storied future.
We train, mentor, and employ divested youth in an apprenticeship program that restores dignity and builds self-sufficiency through belonging to a team, gaining skills, and working hard.
The great hospitality of our youth and staff, along with 10,000 square feet of wonderfully weird rooms and spaces in a strategic location near the state capitol has made the IKE Box a beloved community center. Often referred to as Salem’s Living Room, it is a true Salem icon.
And this icon is now threatened with demolition, an unintended casualty of a great opportunity for Salem to build a new YMCA. The IKE Box is owned by the Y, and the property under it is needed for the housing component of the new Y campus.
It is literally move it or lose it. So we can save this icon – by moving the IKE on!
