Downtown Seguin: Magnolia Hotel

My friend Nancy and I spent all of Saturday morning wondering around downtown and browsing the booths of Trade Days for photos. I'll be posting several of the photos I took over the next few days. This post contains photos of one of the historical buildings in Seguin: the Magnolia Hotel. It is one of the stops along the "True Women" tour.

Check out the True Women website for more information about the tour and the other historical sites of Seguin.


The Magnolia Hotel was built in 1842 and was one of the first structures in Seguin to use concrete.
