Seguin, Texas. 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, Seguin participated in the great victory at San Jacinto. Later he served as a Republic of Texas Senator and as Mayor of San Antonio.

The Guadalupe River was discovered in 1689 by Alonzo deLeon, who named it in honor of the patron saint of the expedition. DeLeon, and other later travelers, considered it to be the most beautiful river in Texas. Today, its' scenic beauty and clear waters still attract admiration from visitors throughout Texas.

There is much to do in and around the area. Many tours are a great source of history and information about the area. The Guadalupe County Fair and Rodeo is held every year and visited by plenty of people in and out of the area. There are numerous parks and lakes that draw in visitors for fishing, swimming, picnics, skiing, and general relaxation.
