Have you ever wanted to own a piece of Central Texas history? Here is your chance! Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, the Downtown Salado property known as The Barton House offers endless opportunities for restauranteurs and entrepreneurs alike. The Barton House property is located on historic Main Street just steps from boutiques, the Inn at Salado, and Pace Park (which has creek access!), and only a half mile from Barrow Brewing Company, Salado Lone Star Winery, and Stagecoach Inn. The beautiful Mill Creek Golf Club, another Salado staple, is only a quick 8 minute drive away. Nestled in a wooded 2.4 acre lot, the quarry-faced limestone ashlar home was built in 1866 for Civil War surgeon Dr. Welborn Barton and his family. In 1879 a surgical wing was added to the left side of the home where General Custer and his troops were rumored to have been treated. Dr. Barton passed away before a second wing could be added, so a covered patio now flanks the right side of the home. The home remained a private residence for more than a century before undergoing a remodel and opening as a restaurant in 1997. Today, The Barton House restaurant is well known for its romantic, fine-dining atmosphere, contemporary farm-to-table cuisine, and unique speakeasy lounge. In addition to the historic home and restaurant business, this property includes two cottages, a 2Bd/1Ba and 1Bd/1Ba. The larger of the two is currently being used as a private residence and boasts several upscale touches, including a fully remodeled kitchen with high-end stainless steel Whirlpool appliances, a walk-in rain shower, and a freestanding tub. One or both of the cottages have the potential to become additional sources of income as long or short-term rentals. This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to own a piece of historical Salado!
