Salisbury was laid out by Joseph Markley in 1794, with Douglas Baker as the surveyor. Peter Shirer & Martin Weimer built the first house, and Peter Shirer was also the first storekeeper. Peter Shirer & Peter Welfley added more lots to the town about 1814, John Smith added more about 1850, and the Beachy family added even more in 1870. The town, located on the Turkey Foot Road, was organized as a borough in 1862.

In 1998, Salisbury was hit by two F3 tornadoes on May 31 and June 2. The May 31 tornado killed one person and injured 15 others and the June 2 tornado intensified into an F4 tornado when it struck Allegany County, Maryland.
