WALDO, TEXAS. Waldo was a small rural community located nine miles northwest of McGregor in western McLennan County. A post office operated from 1892 until 1907; Samuel T. Caldwell was the first postmaster. In 1896 the community had a Methodist and a Baptist church, two general stores, and ninety residents. The community was not labeled on county highway maps in the 1940s, and more recent population information was not available.
