Directions to Salisbury Cemetery:
From Meyersdale, take Route 219 North to Salisbury, make left turn at the one and only stop light in Salisbury onto Ord Street, travel up Ord Street approx. 300 yards, cemetery is on left hand side of road.

Known as "Old Cemetery", situated on a hill at the eastern end of Salisbury, Elk Lick Twp., Somerset Co. Pa. This old burial place usually referred to, by the town people, as "The Old Cemetery on the Hill" to distinguish it from the newer, Odd Fellow's Cemetery of Salisbury, is undoubtedly the town's first burial ground. There seem to be no records available to tell us just when the cemetery was started, but the oldest inscribed date of death found therein is 1815. It was the same year that Peter Shirer, one of the town's founders, built the first store in Salisbury, but as the beginning of the town dates back to 1795, it is probable that some of the many uni[n]scribed graves are older than 1815.
