Canaan is a town in Litchfield County, Connecticut. The town of Canaan is often referred to locally by the name of its principal constituent village, Falls Village.

THE TOWN OF SALISBURY, incorporated in October of 1741, is located in the very Northwest corner of the State of Connecticut. It includes the villages of Salisbury and Lakeville, and the hamlets of Amesville, Lime Rock and Taconic. The MA-NY-CT (Massachusetts-New York-Connecticut) Tri-State Marker is located just on the border of Salisbury.

The Housatonic River flows from North to South and crosses Town lines along its way. Within Salisbury are several ponds and six lakes: Wononscopomuc, Washinee, Washining, Wononpakook, Riga Lake and South Pond. As well as the lakes, the Salisbury land is comprised of low mountains, including access to the Appalachian Trail, and open fields.
