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.[2]

The nearby Salado Creek was designated a natural landmark in Texas in 1867.[2]
