Interstate 95 and Highway 1 parallel one another a short distance west of this spot; a thickly wooded tract surrounds this quiet enclave, largely shielding it from surrounding urban infrastructure activity and noise.

Residential properties sit in clusters along both of these roadways, forming a 164-unit apartment and condo community. The Olde Salem Village Condo Trust office stands at 43 Village Post Road.
