Texas-Size Pecan

The huge nut on the Courthouse lawn is a popular place for taking photos. Made of concrete but looking quite realistic, it honors a major local industry. Crops can reach up to 3 million pounds of pecans, making this county one of the nation's leading producers. Guadalupe County growers helped to pioneer the now-popular nut, which Spanish explorers encountered in this area hundreds of years ago. Some of the earliest pecan orchards were planted in nearby river bottoms, and local specimens were used in upgrading cultivated varieties. The Guadalupe Valley Pecan Growers Association, founded here, is one of the oldest such groups in the state.

 
On the weekend of October 25, Seguin will throw one big party in honor of the pecan! This year's Pecan Fest Heritage Days is chock full of nutty fun at several different locations around town with a free shuttle to most events on Saturday.
 
 
October 24 and 25 join us for "There's a Ghost Story Here" at 7, 8 and 9pm both nights. The historic ghost tours will feature Sebastopol House where attendees will hear its ghostly tale and see the mysterious dungeon, then be shuttled to the Mosheim Mansion where Victorian-costumed guides will tell haunting tales as guests tour the historic home. Tickets are $10 and can be purchased at the Visitor Info Center at 116 N. Camp St. or at Sebastopol (704 Zorn St.) the night of the tour.
