Kingsbury, Texas. Kingsbury is located ten miles from northeast Seguin, which is located in northeastern Guadalupe County. Sam Neel, an agent for English settlers, built a home near the site in the early 1870s. The Galveston, Harrisburg and San Antonio Railway came through in 1875 and a post office was opened that year.

The town was laid out in 1876 and named for railroad official. By the mid-1880s the settlement had a steam gristmill, a cotton gin, a general store, a church, a district school, and a population of 130. In 1904 the town had two schools for fifty-nine black students and two schools for 123 white students. Kingsbury became part of the Seguin Independent School District in 1962.

Cotton was the leading product dominating the area during the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries; oil became important during the 1920s. Kingsbury had 200 residents and six businesses in 1990. Today the Kingsbury area reports a population that has grown to 1,783. Its economy was still largely based on oil and agriculture.
