Converse, Texas. Converse is located thirteen miles from downtown San Antonio in northeastern Bexar County. It was named for the chief engineer of the Southern Pacific Railroad, Major Converse, who in 1877 bought a tract of land including the town site.

A post office was established in 1878, and by 1885 a population of thirty was reported. In 1896 the town had a saloon, two cotton gins, and a grocery. In 1990 the community reportedly had the oldest 4-H Club in Texas. A singing society, the Salatrillo Liederkranz, had been active for many years.

The population in 1946 was 175; by 1965 the town had twenty-two businesses and 900 residents. Converse has become a suburb of San Antonio. Today the town has close to 100 businesses.
