Search Raymondville Texas

'The King's Salt' is an intermittent salt lake that was the property of king of Spain during the Spanish colonial period. Water accumulates in shallow depression during rainy season, and evaporates to leave deposits of crystallized rock salt. For two centuries salt was mined here and was very important to the Confederacy during the Civil War. Salt Lake is 20 miles W of Raymondville off TX 186.
