Salduro was a railway station very near the salt flats. In latin, Salduro means "hard salt". The town was built to support the potash industry, and grew to roughly 200 residents. When producing potash was no longer profitable, the plant was dismantled and all the residents moved away. Salduro remained a ghost, until a fire wiped out what was left in 1944. The actual town site is just south of the rest stop on I-80. It is 86 miles west of Tooele, or 10 miles east of Wendover. There is nothing there anymore.
