Built starting in 1852, the Stagecoach Inn of Salado, Texas, is thought to be the oldest extant structure in the village. The Inn was built as a stagecoach stop along the Chisholm Trail. The simple, two-story wood-frame building is in a frontier vernacular style. The structure was extended several times in the 1940s and 1950s to serve as a restaurant.[3] The inn was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1983.[1]

The nearby Salado Creek was designated a natural landmark in Texas in 1867.[3]
