Salado College Park is the location of the ruins and grounds of Salado College. Plaques throughout the park tell the story of the College built here in 1859 by visionaries who established a facility for students from elementary grades through two years of college based on the then unheard of belief that both men and women deserve equal access to higher education in a nondenominational setting.
