Chief Cornplanter

The tribes of Chief Cornplanter were known to have been the first Indians to have inhabited the Salisbury area. It is said that the Iroquois tribes later acquired the land as a result of several battles in the Casselman River valley. Arrowhead hunting has always been a favorite past time for many current day residents of the Salisbury area.

Indian Memorial

     "Do not stand at my grave and weep: 
       I am not there. I do not sleep. 
       I am a thousand winds that blow. 
       I am the diamond glints on snow. 
       I am the gentle autumn's rain. 
       When you awaken in the mornings hush, 
       I am the swift uplifting rush of, 
       quiet birds circled flight. 
       I am the soft stars 
       that shine at night. 
       Do not stand at my grave and cry: 
       I am not there. I did not die."
