History in a Pecan Shell

Salmon had a post office granted in 1902 - under the name of postmaster S.D. Salmon.

The town had telephone service in 1914 and 100 persons to call one another. The population stayed under 100 persons, sometimes dropping as low as only 10 persons. It rose again to 100 in the 1960s and then dipped back to about 20 - where it was for the 1990 census.
