    History in a Pecan Shell

    Named for nearby Salty Creek, the community dates back to the 1860s. It was granted a post office in 1894 which was discontinued in 1909.

    Population figures for Salty are not available, but at one time it was a voting precinct for Milam County residents living in that part of the county.

    Salty schools were merged with those in Thorndale just after WWII. A church community hall and cemetery were in place as late as the 1980s.
