Seguin is nestled in the heart of Guadalupe County, serving as the County Seat, along Interstate 10 and the banks of the Guadalupe River.
Seguin is one of the oldest towns in Texas, having been founded just sixteen months after the Texas Revolution. In the late 1800's, the arrival of the railroad brought cheap lumber and materials to outfit the town with five brickworks. With its rich history comes a friendly, small town feeling with streets graced by Queen Anne mansions, fine homes from the early part of the 20th century, and charming bungalows. Located along the banks of the Guadalupe River, the town also prides themselves with an abundance of Pecan trees, claiming fame to the "World's largest pecan" and largest collection of nutcrackers.
A community of established neighborhoods, the area is also highlighted by beautiful parks including Max Starke Park. Starke Park stretches along the beautiful Guadalupe River with an 18-hole golf course, picnic areas, a pavilion, and a scenic river drive. Seguin is also home to Texas Lutheran University, ranked #3 by the U.S. News & World Report 2014 Best West Regional Universities, a state-of-the-art hospital, and a range of cultural, recreational, and employment opportunities.
