New Salem Fire Department Punkintown Fair
Punkintown Fair historyThe area of New Salem was first settled as farmland around 1770 and soon the Beaverdam Road was established through the future hamlet. Legend has it that the original name of the hamlet, Punkintown, was because a sow and her litter were able to live inside a "punkin" (pumpkin) since the pumpkins grown in the area grew so large. When the post office was established here in 1830 the name New Salem was used.
