The Town of Salisbury, incorporated in October of 1741, is located in the very Northwest corner of the State of Connecticut. It includes the villages of Salisbury and Lakeville, and the hamlets of Amesville, Lime Rock and Taconic.
The Housatonic River flows from North to South and crosses Town lines along its way. Within Salisbury are several ponds and six lakes: Wononscopomuc, Washinee, Washining, Wononpakook, Riga Lake and South Pond. As well as the lakes, the Salisbury land is comprised of low mountains, including access to the Appalachian Trail, and open fields. Residents take advantage of the beautiful hiking and walking trails. The lakes and beaches are busy with swimmers, boaters and fishermen during all seasons.
