Salado



The limestone springs and abundance of fish attracted Native Americans, explorers, settlers and cattle drivers to this serene spot on Salado Creek. Today, day-trippers fill the same narrow streets cattle once crowded. Old limestone buildings and handsome historic homes thrive as galleries, shops and restaurants. On a hill overlooking Main Street, a few rock walls are all that remain of the once prosperous Salado College. A bronze statue of Col. E.S.C. Robertson welcomes visitors to the site. Robertson donated the land for the school in 1859. Also downtown, the Stagecoach Inn, now a restaurant with an attached modern motel, has been serving weary travelers since the early 1860s.
