Salado Texas
Salado is located on Salado Creek adjacent to Interstate Highway 35 between Waco and Austin in Bell County. Salado Creek was the first designated Texas natural landmark in 1966. Archibald Willingham was the first permanent Anglo-American settler in 1850. The post office was established in 1852. The town was founded directly as a result of the establishment of Salado College. Salado was founded on October 8, 1859, along with the founding of Salado College. Col. Elijah Sterling C. Robertson offered to donate 320 acres to a corporation to sell stock (with the proceeds of the sale going to build a college) and lay off the land into lots for a town to be called Salado. Salado prospered as an educational, industrial, and agricultural center. In 1884, Salado boasted of 7 churches, 14 stores, 2 hotels, 2 blacksmiths, and 3 cotton gins.
