Salto Veloso was colonized by Italian families coming from South San Catarina and the Serra Ga˙cha. The place was named for its first inhabitant, caboclo Ant˘nio JosÚ Veloso, who established in the late 19th century his residence near a waterfall ("salto"). His ranch soon became a popular place among tropeiros.
