Description
Home of the world's largest pecan, Seguin (pronounced “sa-geen”) was founded as Walnut Springs in 1838. The name was changed to honor Col. Juan N. Seguin, a distinguished Tejano patriot who served under Sam Houston in the fight for Texas independence. A statue of Col. Seguin stands in Central Park at South River and Nolte streets.
The giant pecan—a sculpture on the courthouse lawn—marks Seguin as a major cultivator of the nut. Guided tours of the area include sites from Janice Woods Windle's historical novel “True Women.” The town's first church, built for a Methodist conference in 1849, is among the oldest surviving protestant churches in the state. Seguin also is the home of Texas Lutheran University.
