Early settlers came into San Augustine County on the Old San Antonio Road, also known as “El Camino Real de los Tejas”, now a designated National Historic Trail.
San Augustine is the home of the first university, churches of all denominations, and the first American settlement in Texas. The abundant history in our area is evident in over 50 recorded Texas Historical Landmark homes and sites.
San Augustine is located equal distances between Toledo Bend and Sam Rayburn Reservoirs and boasts unspoiled waterways for fishing and recreation. As an added bonus, our deep East Texas woods are a bird watcher's paradise!
San Augustine is a great place to visit – and a tempting place to stay.
