Salado’s iconic Stagecoach Inn has opened a new event venue: Longhorn Ballroom.

Able to accommodate as many as 200 guests, making it the largest event venue in Bell County, the new Longhorn Ballroom features an adaptable layout able to accommodate any type of event, and includes access to state-of-the-art A/V equipment, Wi-Fi and an on-site restroom and kitchen. Along with the new Longhorn Ballroom, the Stagecoach Inn features several other event spaces that can accommodate both smaller and more substantial groups, including the Sam Houston Room, the Chisholm Trail Room, Ruth’s Room and Dion’s Room.

The newly refurbished 159-year-old, 48-room Stagecoach Inn is a Central Texas landmark nestled among lush landscaping adjacent to Salado Creek.
