Town of Salisbury
Tucked into the extreme northwest corner of Connecticut, Salisbury encompasses 60.1 square miles and has a year round population of approximately 3,986. The population increases considerably on weekends and during the summer as visitors seek the peace and quiet of the beautiful lakes, walking trails and a bit of historic, hometown America. A board of Selectmen, Board of Finance and Town Meeting govern the town.
Historically, Salisbury is the home of some of the finest iron ever produced. The residents take great pride in the history of having mined the high quality ore that supplied General George Washington with cannons and cannonballs, and also having manufactured the locomotive wheels that aided more rapid movement to the west.
The town is comprised of five villages - Lakeville, Lime Rock, Taconic, Amesville, and Salisbury Center - all of which were bustling communities in years gone by.
Visitors have been coming to Salisbury for years to view world class ski jumping at Satre Hill, for the famous Lime Rock Race Track, to walk the Appalachian Trail, and to enjoy the natural beauty of its country roads, hills and lakes. The town is home to the first lending library in the United States, the oldest continuously operating Methodist Church, and three well-known private schools: The Hotchkiss School, Salisbury School and Indian Mountain School.
