Introduction to Floresville, Texas

Floresville History

The first settlers were the Spanish who were looking for routes from the gulf coast to San Antonio settlements. They settled in the area because of the rich soil and abundance of water. Don Francisco Flores de Abrego from the Canary Island established a ranch close to present day Floresville. The settlement grew around the Flores family. The task of laying out the town began in the 1870s. A post office was built in 1872, and in 1873 Floresville was declared the county seat. Floresville went on to become a center for livestock and cotton industries at the beginning of the twentieth century. It continues to serve as a hub for cattle trade and agribusiness, especially for the peanut industry.
