Salado is a town which grew around the plantation and home of Sterling C. Robertson in central Texas. The town grew greatly after the founding of Salado College in 1860. It was also part of the "Old Chishom Trail". It was incorporated in 1867. The first farmer's grange in Texas was started here in 1873. Unfortunately for Salado, the town was bypassed by the railroad. With the lack of a railroad, the college closed and the town grew much smaller. Now one may find a wealth of culture here in Salado with a variety of interesting and unique shops to choose from. It is known for its outstanding carftsmen and artists. There are many buildings listed on the National Register of Historic homes.
