Celebrate Seguin's 178th birthday August 12th!

SEGUIN, Texas –It’s time to sing ‘Happy Birthday’ to Seguin as it turns the big 1-7-8. The Seguin Conservation Society joined Mayor Don Keil in signing a proclamation declaring August 12th, 2016 as the City of Seguin’s official 178th Birthday.

“We feel it is important to have a celebration for Seguin as it was founded in 1838 during the early beginning days of The Republic of Texas. We sit in the cradle of so much Texas history!” said Marty Keil, Seguin Conservation Society.

“Seguin is a real Texas town thanks to the hard work, dedication and love of so many. 178 years strong!” said Marty Keil.
