 Delmont, Pennsylvania (Wikipedia). The 300 acres of land was warranted to William Wilson in 1784 and upon his arrival in 1785 he named the area New Salem. On April 8, 1833, the town was incorporated as "New Salem Borough." The mailing address was Salem Crossroads until 1871, when town postmaster Zachariah Zimmerman changed it to Delmont. The town and the post office carried two different names until May 16, 1967, when residents voted to change the borough's name to Delmont.
