Westmoreland County is divided into 65 municipalities of various sizes, shapes, and landscapes. It is our mission to explore what makes every one of those 65 municipalities special.
We are moving in random order through the list. We are on our ninth feature, and this time, our randomizer landed on Salem Township.
Salem Township is a beautiful municipality, full of rolling hills, farms, and is bisected by Route 22 which allows easy access to travel. Around 6,900 residents enjoy Salem Township, and students are served by the Greensburg Salem School District.
The Westmoreland Heritage Trail runs through Salem Township, a gorgeous, multi-use trail for hikers, bikers, runners, and walkers. This trail is a MUST explore for anyone visiting the area!
Salem Township’s beautiful scenery allows for two gorgeous golf courses, Totterridge and Cloverleaf. Golfers will enjoy the excellent courses, surrounded by trees, agriculture, and peaceful nature.
For the history lovers, Fairview Park, Hannastown Farm, and Slickville Historic District are all listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
