Since its founding in 1902 the Salisbury Association has carried out its original charter to benefit the Town, protect its natural resources, celebrate local history and present cultural experiences for the enrichment of all. While its mission remains the same, the Association’s organizational structure has evolved. In 1976 the newly-formed Land Trust found a home within the organization. More recently, the Historical Society was added as an official committee, reflecting the Association’s long tradition of support for its local heritage. Today the Association includes these primary committees—Land Trust, Historical Society and Civic Activities—a unique arrangement among town organizations.
