A tree-shaded picnic area beside picturesque Salado Creek. The site was a Native American campground long before recorded history. Since Main Street was part of the Chisholm Trail, ruts from wagon wheels still appear in the bedrock of the creek just north of the park.
This inn, built in 1860, was a prominent site on the Chisholm Trail. The guest book reads like a frontier Who's Who: Gen. George A. Custer, Robert E. Lee, Sam Houston, Jesse James and Shanghai Pierce. The primary old frame structure is restored as a restaurant. 401 S. Stagecoach Road.
This outdoor venue hosts plays and musicals, including the July/Aug "Salado Legends" that depicts life in the 1850s. "A Christmas Carol" is staged in early December. Tablerock also hosts Gospel Music festivals. www.tablerock.org
