It was in this same year that Salado incorporated for the purpose of issuing bonds to build a wire cable suspension foot-bridge across Salado Creek. Also, during this year, Rev. James E. Ferguson acquired the Chalk Mill, built in 1848, and the mill became known as the Ferguson Mill.

I have been honored to serve as one of your Alderman for four years. As many of you know, I decided not to run for office again so that I could focus on my family.
