This small town lies in the northern part of Gonzales County and is host to oil and gas commerce, development, and housing due to discovery of the Eagle Ford Shale.
Gonzales, the county seat of Gonzales County, is at the confluence of the Guadalupe and San Marcos rivers, on U.S. highways 90, 97, and 183 in the north central part of the county. As the westernmost point of Anglo-American settlement and the closest town to San Antonio de Bexar, it was the center of much of the Texas revolutionary activity. On October 2, 1835, Texans resisted Mexican dragoons sent to retrieve the town cannon. Challenging the Mexicans to "come and take it," the Texans rallied around the gun and fought the battle of Gonzales, the first skirmish of the Texas Revolution. The city has prided itself on the term "Come and Take it" since the battle.
