Salado, a Texas Frontier College Town

Salado, Texas, located in Bell County between the cities of Waco and Austin, was an original stop for the stage lines and was home for the first coeducational college in the state of Texas.

The Village of Salado was founded at the Old Military Road crossing of Salado Creek on October 8, 1859 coincident with the founding of Salado College.  Founded by the early Scottish settlers because of its plentiful springs and rich farmland, Salado became a center for commerce and culture.
