Salisbury, Maryland

Salisbury is a city in Wicomico County, Maryland. Located at the head of the Wicomico River, Salisbury is the county seat and has a population of about 30,300. Founded in 1732 as a seaport, Salisbury grew to rival Baltimore as a shipping and trade center. Today Salisbury has a diverse economy incorporating manufacturing, food processing, retail, healthcare and cultural tourism. Representative manufacturers include industrial fan manufacturers Viskon-Aire Corporation, Perdue Farms poultry packers, and Toroid Corporation of Maryland. Salisbury is also home to Salisbury University and Sojourner-Douglass College.

Among Salisbury's earliest industries were produce and poultry farming, with locally grown foodstuffs including Berries, cantaloupe, tomatoes and cucumbers. By the early 20th century, Salisbury's central location on the Delmarva Peninsula and access to shipping and railroads, had made it a commercial hub, and earned it the distinction of the "crossroads of Delmarva." A list of Salisbury's businesses in 1919 includes four shirt factories, four canneries, two gas companies, two candy factories, and an automotive parts shop and garage. Perdue Farms was founded in 1920, and initially sold eggs, then laying hens. In the 1940s, under the direction of Frank Perdue, the company began selling chickens for cooking. Today Purdue is a multinational company, with interests including poultry processing and breeding, specialty animal feeds and organic fertilizers. Other companies which have been active in Salisbury in the 20th century include Campbell Soup, and Vinyl Plastics, Inc. Salisbury-Ocean City Wicomico Regional Airport was established in 1945 as a Naval Training base, and is currently the headquarters for Piedmont Airlines.
