Seagoville History

Hugh L. Buchanan, who arrived in the area in the 1860s, was one of the first settlers of Seagoville. The founder of the city, T. K. Seago, arrived in 1876 and set up a general store. The first school, consisting of a log cabin and split-log seats, was constructed by John A. Brinegar in 1867. The community accepted the name Seago in 1876 in honor of T. K. Seago. In 1878, the first Baptist Church was established in Seago. The community grew and prospered steadily and, in 1910, changed its name to Seagoville to avoid confusion with a nearby town called Sego.
