Bridge of Saltsburg Hub on the main line canal

Salt-water wells gave Saltsburg its name, while the Main Line Canal provided ready transportation opportunities and combined with local coal resources to create a flourishing community. Today, Saltsburg’s Canal Park, West Penn Trail, Westmoreland Heritage Trail and river access make a unique intermingling of concepts – preserving the past, poised for the future.
