Logo   Salisbury, Connecticut
A fine old town at the uppermost corner of northwestern Connecticut, with lots of antiques.



Salisbury is an aristocratic, historic Connecticut town (population 4000) at the southern end of the range of low mountains that, in Massachusetts to the north, are called the Berkshire Hills.

The villages of Lakeville and Lime Rock (with its auto racetrack) are within the township of Salisbury, and the Appalachian Trail runs through the town.

Housatonic Meadows State Park is north of Salisbury US Route 7, with camping and picnic areas.

Late in September there's a big flea market in Salisbury, and at the height of the fall foliage season the Salisbury Antiques Fair is held in the Town Hall.

Come any time of year, though. The town is pretty, tranquil, surrounded by gorgeous country, and only 20 miles from the heart of the Berkshire Hills' summer and winter activities.

Stay in nearby Cornwall Bridge, famous for its picturesque covered bridge, if you like, and consider a short trip to Lakeville for a meal.

Iron ore was discovered here in 1728, and the town, incorporated in 1741, soon became noted for the quality of its wought iron. The Connecticut arms manufacturers were major customers for Salisbury iron.
