About Us

The Salford lands are a southern part of the Old Goshenhoppen region.

Salford's physical features are scenic, but they also remarkably influence the township's development.  Changes in elevation from high points in the Unami hills along Salford's western border to the low points along the Ridge Valley Creek and along its eastern border, add beauty to the township.  Salford is known for its boulder fields including the area locally known as "Devil's Potato Patch", which extend into the township's upper region.  These boulder strewn hillsides discourage farming and development.

Thank You Fred Moyer for sharing ......

Salford has preserved many acres of Open Space - the first major acquisition was the 104 acre parcel known as Whites Mill Preserve.  Since 2005, the Township has added 41 acres of adjoining properties bringing total acreage to 145 acres.

At the present time, about 17 percent of Salford's 6,080 acres are preserved and protected from development.
