Gonzales, the Lexington of Texas.

In 1825 Green DeWitt established a colony on the confluence of the Guadalupe and San Marcos Rivers. Gonzales earned its place as the "Lexington of Texas" a decade later when the first shot for Texas Independence was fired.

Gonzales is the only remaining Texas town that has retained its original plan, as surveyed by the Mexican Government in 1832. Our town has two plazas, Confederate Square and Texas Heroes Square, with long boulevards -- one running North and South, the other East and West -- in the shape of a Spanish Cross. Designating all property within the squares and boulevards as public lands and parks, many settlers built their homes and churches around these public places.

We invite you to tour our town and to visit some of these attractions:
