Historical Note

Seguin is the county seat of Guadalupe County, Texas. Originally inhabited by the Tonkawa people, the area was first explored by the Spanish in 1718. By 1833, the region was heavily settled by Spanish, Mexican, and Anglo pioneers. The name of the settlement was changed to "Seguin," after the political and military figure Juan N. Seguin, in February 1839.
