About Seguin

Seguin, Texas

 

 

 

 

 

 

Seguin  is a city in and the county seat of Guadalupe County, Texas,United States. The estimated municipal population in 2012 was 26,272.

Seguin is one of the oldest towns in Texas, founded just sixteen months after the Texas Revolution. The frontier settlement was a cradle of the Texas Rangers and home to the celebrated Captain Jack Hays, perhaps the most famous Ranger of all.

Seguin was the home of Dr. John E. Park, who experimented in construction using concrete made from local materials. The nearly 100 structures—the courthouse, schools, churches, homes, cisterns, walls, etc.—made up the largest concentration of early 19th-Century concrete buildings in the U.S. About 20 of them remain standing.

The use of concrete largely ended when the railroad arrived in 1876, bringing cheap lumber and the equipment needed for brick-making. The town had five brickworks, and the wooden buildings of downtown were completely replaced with brick by the beginning of World War I.

For almost 100 years, the town was dependent on the rich surrounding farmland and ranches. Then an oil boom came just as the Great Depression was taking down other towns and cities. Seguin could raise enough tax money to match the federal grants for 'make-work' projects. The New Deal transformed the city's public face with Art Deco style City Hall, Courthouse, Jail, and fountain, as well as storm sewers, sidewalks, and three swimming pools (one for Anglos, one for blacks, one for Hispanics). The town commemorated its centennial by opening Max Starcke Park, with a golf course, a pavilion, picnic tables and BBQ pits along a scenic river drive, and a curving dam that created one of the most beautiful waterfalls in Texas.

To preserve some of the historic character of the town, Seguin became one of the state's first Main Street cities, and the downtown district was placed on the National Register of Historic Places. Fine homes by leading architects J. Reily Gordon, Solon McAdoo, Leo M.J. Dielman, Atlee B. Ayers, and Marvin Eickenroht dating from the late 19th century and the first half of the 20th century can be found on many streets. However the city does not have any officially designated historic residential districts.

The post-war era also saw industrial development, with an electric furnace mini-mill turning scrap metal into construction products, a factory making electronic components for automobiles, and most recently a Caterpillar plant assembling diesel engines.

Parades

Seguin loves a good parade, and holds three every year.

Performing arts

The Mid-Texas Symphony holds half its concerts in the Jackson Auditorium at TLU in Seguin, the other half at various venues in nearby New Braunfels, in addition to two free Children's Concerts in each city. The symphony was founded in 1978 by Anita Windecker, a music professor, who believed that these towns, and her beloved Texas Lutheran University, could support a professional orchestra. Today Seguin and New Braunfels are the smallest cities in the U.S. to sponsor one. In 2013 David Mairs marked his 18th season as Music Director of the Mid-Texas Symphony. Laurie Jenschke is the Choral Director and Director of the TLU/MTS Community Music Academy.
