French explorers, who arrived in the 18th century, were primarily involved in harvesting salt. They named the river "Saline", which is a French word meaning "salty" or "saline". Numerous English and German settlers arrived in in the 19th century. Orange Risdon, a surveyor, is credited with founding the community. Along with other residents, he christened the town "Saline", after the river. Saline was officially established in 1832, and was incorporated as a city in 1931.
