Seguin

Seguin, the county seat of Guadalupe County, is thirty-five miles northeast of San Antonio. The first recorded evidence of exploration in the Seguin region was in 1718. On August 12, 1838, thirty-three of the Gonzales Rangers, a volunteer group, joined Joseph S. Martin in laying out a townsite near Walnut Branch; they named the site Walnut Springs. The name was changed in February 1839 to Seguin for Juan N. Seguín. The economy of Seguin has generally been agricultural, though in its early years the town was a trading partner of Gonzales, New Braunfels, and San Antonio. Seguin was on the trail taken by German emigrants from Indianola to the Hill Country. With the influx of the German population, farming methods improved and trade increased.
