FROM THE GUIDEBOOK: Seguin is small enough to have a friendly feeling - a town where tree-lined streets are graced by Queen Anne mansions, charming bungalows and other comfortable homes.
This is a community of neighborhoods where families live among people of all ages, incomes, and backgrounds. Here good public schools are a proud tradition. And a fine park stretches along the beautiful Guadalupe River.

THE SEBASTOPOL HOUSE, located at W. Court and Erkel
Before the Civil War, a team of slaves built this remarkable concrete house. Experimenting with concrete for houses and public buildings, Seguin was known at the time as the "Mother Of Concrete Cities".
The Heritage Museum, 114 N. River St. Currently undergoing renovation, most of the exhibits of early Texas pottery, weapons and artifacts were closed to public view. When the Museum reopens in a couple of months, the second story exhibit hall and theater will be something to see.
This should be of interest to RebAl. Standing in Central Park is a monument to Seguin native Colonel John Ireland, CSA. The monument honors not only Colonel Ireland, but all of Texas' honored Confederate dead.
