Whether you are here to follow the Independence Trail, visit our historic sites, see the wildflowers, shop for antiques or collectibles or try our famous barbecue, we invite you to stop by the Visitor Information Center at the Chamber of Commerce office in the Old Jail Museum and pick up information on all the sights to see here!

QUICK FACTS

  • Gonzales is one of the earliest Anglo-American settlements in Texas, the first west of the Colorado River.
  • It was established by Empresario Green DeWitt as the capital of his colony in August 1825. DeWitt named the community for Rafael Gonzáles, governor of Coahuila y Tejas.
  • The original settlement (located where Highway 90-A crosses Kerr Creek) was abandoned in 1826 after two Indian attacks. It was rebuilt nearby in 1827. The town remains today as it was originally surveyed.
