Seguin was founded in 1838, just over a year after Texas became an independent state. The town gets its name from Juan Seguin, a captain in the Texas army.
The “world’s largest pecan” also lives in Seguin. The 2,300-pound pecan, erected in 1962, sits in front of the courthouse. Although a rival pecan in Missouri threatened to take the crown, Seguin retook the title in 2011.
