Seguin History

The members of Mathew Caldwell's Gonzales Rangers set the foundation of Seguin in 1838 on land that was originally given to the Umphries Branch by the Government of Mexico. However, the city was not incorporated until the year 1853. The original name of the city, Walnut Springs, was changed to Seguin six months after its establishment to honor the memories of Juan Seguin. The city quickly became a popular trade center and stopping point for German immigrants who traveled through the area to German settlements located nearby.
