Passing Through: Grand Saline, Texas

Updated: Mar 11, 2022

If you like salt, here's your happy place. Grand Saline, a small town in East Texas, is located just off highway 80 in Van Zandt County between Mineola and Terrell. We happened upon it unexpectedly, drawn in by its small but interesting Main Street, train tracks and prominent Morton Salt iconography. Morton Salt has one of its three rock salt mines there!

The town embraces its salty theme, with everything from its restaurant names to its window displays. We weren't able to see the Grand Saline Salt Palace, but it's on the list for next time!
