About the Society

Just over fifty years ago a small group of people saw fit to make arrangements to preserve the town hearst. From that effort grew a lively Historical Society.

In a short amount of time a Museum grew around it containing many historical objects and displays including an example of a country store and post office.

We hope you will come and visit our Museum.

Winter Museum Hours: 11am-2pm on  Nov11 2017, Dec 9 2017, Jan 6 2018,  Feb 3 2018

The Salisbury Historical Society owns the beautiful Baptist Meeting House where concerts and lectures are held as well as historical displays are shown. Among the displays is a unique array of wedding gowns spanning six generations from one family. In summer months we host several programs. 


We also host a annual unique event for the Fourth graders of 3 towns to encourage the love of history. It is called Round Robin Day. Part of our commitment includes a very unusual Cemetery Walk which the children love. The Cemetery Walk is done again in the summer during Old Home  Day.

Our Historical Flags Project consists of 12 earlier American flags  which are flown in 2 locations in town from Memorial Day in late May through Veterans Day in November.  The recent severe wind and rain storm left us with 8 flags remaining for this year but they fly proudly. We will be replacing them in the spring prior to May and if you would like to help keep the project ongoing please let us know. We always greatly appreciate sponsors and donors.

We welcome all to our programs and encourage you to be become part of our efforts to preserve history and enrich this effort with your interests, energy and talents. For more about how you can be part of preserving our history:  ABOUT US
