Salem Township was established in 1786 and is situated in the lower end of Luzerne County along the Susquehanna River. With a population of 4,300, the township has residential and commercial property as well as large agricultural sections. The Susquehanna Steam Electric Station is situated here and provides us with the Riverlands, a park for fishing, hiking and relaxation for the area.
