History

the text in this section is copied from an article in Wikipedia

While still part of Massachusetts, the town was granted as Baker's Town after Captain Thomas Baker in 1736. After the border between Massachusetts and New Hampshire was fixed, the town was on the New Hampshire side of the border. It was re-granted by the Masonian proprietors in 1749 with the name Stevenstown, and settled as early as 1750. Additionally known as Gerrishtown and New Salisbury, the name Salisbury was taken when the town incorporated in 1768.
