City of Seguin
Seguin is small enough to have a friendly feeling. A town where tree-lined streets are graced by Queen Anne mansions, charming bungalows, and other comfortable homes. A community of neighborhoods where families live among people of all incomes, ages, and backgrounds. Here good public schools are a proud tradition. And a fine park stretches along the beautiful Guadalupe River. Seguin is big enough to boast a top-rated university and a state-of-the-art hospital. Over 30,0000 folks here enjoy a range of cultural, recreational, and employment opportunities. Our robust diversified economy features a steelmaker, a manufacturer of automotive parts, and plants making roadside mowing equipment and building materials. In 2009, Seguin was proud to be selected by Caterpillar as the site of a major new engine manufacturing facility. The community of Seguin was established in 1838 by members of Mathew Caldwell's Gonzales Rangers, but was not incorporated until 1853. It was originally called Walnut Springs for the nearby fresh water sources. Just six months later the name was changed to honor Colonel Juan N. Seguin, one of Sam Houston's ablest Lieutenants throughout the struggle for Texas' independence. As leader of a dedicated group of Texans of Mexican ancestry, Col. Seguin participated in the great victory at San Jacinto. Later he served as a Republic of Texas Senator and as Mayor of San Antonio.
