The Salsbury home no longer stands; near the lost home was the burial place of Salsbury's first wife, Sarah Danby, and their child. He later married Susanna Freeman. In addition to running a farm, he taught at the Vienna School for White Children in 1870-1871.
Salsbury sold land to black freedmen under favorable terms and in 1884, he donated land for a burial ground for people of color, which became West End Cemetery. He also sold land to several trustees for the Sons and Daughters Cemetery, where some soldiers who served under Salsbury are among those buried. Several extant historic homes in Vienna on Walnut Lane, Nutley Street, and Windover Avenue were built on land acquired from Salsbury. Salsbury himself and his second wife Susanna are buried together at Merrifield Cemetery.
Captain Salsbury's third wife Lucia survived him; she and Salsbury's children donated the quarter-acre of land for the park to the town of Vienna in 1938. A passive park, it features mature trees and access to the stream. The National Wildlife Federation designated the park as a Certified Native Habitat. Among the native plants growing there are river birches, service berry, button bushes, and golden ragwort.
The Louise Archer School (formerly known as the Vienna Colored School), built in 1939, was near the spring on Nutley Street and students carried water from there to the school.
