History

Seguin is one of the oldest communities in the state having emerged 16 months after the Texas Revolution. The city was home to Dr. John E. Park, a contractor who experimented with building with concrete made from local materials. He built about 100 structures using this material and they included schools, churches, cisterns, homes, walls and the courthouse. Nearly 20 of those structures are still standing today.

The railroad came through the area in 1876 and brought inexpensive lumber and equipment used in the manufacturing of bricks. The town had five brickwork plants and wooden buildings in the downtown area were replaced by bricks by the beginning of World War One. Seguin wanted to preserve the past and was one of the first Main Street cities in the state. The downtown area was added to the National Register of Historic Places and there is architecture dating back to the 19th century from very prominent architects.
