Salisbury, North Carolina, is the county seat of Rowan County. Like cities and towns across America, it had local boosters to give it a slogan and promote it as, “the town with a future,” “a nice place to raise a family,” and similar. In 1913, the Salisbury Industrial Club decided that “Salisbury’s the Place” and took out newspaper ads to that effect. They even got a 19’ x 34’ sign built in the shape of a diamond that said “Salisbury’s the Place” in flashing lights.
