Delmont was initially known as New Salem. In 1814, 48 lots were auctioned off to form a "crossroads" town. As the area developed, the town was referred to locally as "Salem Crossroads." 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.
