Museum

 Origins

 The Central Texas Area Museum located in Salado, Texas on Interstate Highway 35, was established by a group of interested citizens of the Central Texas area, received its area charter from the State of Texas on November 19, 1958 and was opened on August 1, 1959.

The Museum is housed at present in a beautiful old rock building more than 100 years old just a few hundred yards from the picturesque clear spring-fed Salado creek.

The Museum, located in one of Texas’ most interesting small villages with an early frontier history, was founded in order to preserve the historical items of our early frontier days. It also was established for the purpose of housing a library which is to contain books and papers connected with the settlement of Texas and of the Central Texas area.
