Salt Gap

Salt Gap, named for nearby Salt Creek, is on Farm roads 503 and 504, less than half a mile from the Concho county line in western McCulloch County. A post office operated there from 1905 to 1913 and from 1924 to sometime after 1930. During the mid-1930s Salt Gap comprised a school, a gin, a gristmill, and two stores. A peak population of sixty was reported in 1939. Salt Gap had twenty-five residents in 1990. The population remained the same in 2000.

Adapted from the official Handbook of Texas, a state encyclopedia developed by the Texas State Historical Association (TSHA). It is an authoritative source of trusted historical records.
