Seguin, Texas: Make Our Home Yours
Seguin is home to more than 30,000 residents and is the county seat for Guadalupe County. It has a small town feel but is growing and improving every day. There are currently over 8,500 homes planned within the city limits, and new signs going up every day, it seems!
In November 2013 the community resoundingly passed a $97 million bond issue to build a new high school which has been needed for quite some time. Construction was completed and was opened for the 2017- 2018 school year!
Again in 2019 the voters agreed to new bonds to rebuild Matador Stadium at its current location, provide $40 million for a renovation/rebuild of Briesemeister Middle School, new all-inclusive playground equipment for all 7 elementary schools, and money for future land purchase for a new McQueeney Elementary.
It is so amazing to have great community support of our school district.
A new library was opened in 2016, featuring 45,000 square feet of space to accommodate public meetings, adult, teen and children areas and ever changing technology. There will be outdoor space for activities and programs as well as a play area. Our newest park, Park West is open on Vaughn Avenue and includes a splash pad, play area and new soccer fields. Nature trails, lighted basketball court and skate park, off road bicycle trails, picnic pavilions and concession stands add to the park’s enjoyment.
Downtown Seguin is where most festivities take place, including Freedom Fiesta, Pecan Fest Heritage Days and Christmas Tree decorating and lighting of the trees. We are also home of the “World’s Largest Small Town Parade”. Every year more floats are added, nearing 200 entries, as thousands line the streets from Cedar Street to the Seguin Events Center.
We are officially home of the world’s largest pecan, and although the one downtown in front of the courthouse is made of cement, all of our others are very real. Guadalupe County is one of the nation’s top producers with crops bringing in close to 3 million pounds annually.
Other activities in Seguin include ZDT’s Amusement Park, An 18-hole golf course at Max Starcke Park and the Wave Pool. Texas Lutheran University, consistently ranked as one of the best education values in the nation, is located here as well. Historical sites include the Heritage Village- Los Nogales Museum, Sebastopol House, the Aumont Hotel and the recently restored Texas Theater.
