SALEM, TX (WALLER COUNTY)
SALEM, TEXAS (Waller County). Salem is on Farm Road 1736 four miles northwest of Hempstead in north Waller County. The settlement may have been established before the Civil War; a few death dates on grave markers in the Salem Cemetery actually predate the war. A school existed at Salem in 1892 but apparently merged with a neighboring district the following year. In 1990 a few scattered dwellings and vacant houses and the cemetery remain at the site.
