Historic Site · Hidden Gem · History Museum
Los Nogales is a historic 1800s home, among the oldest structures still standing in Seguin, Texas and is the last remaining adobe constructed home in the city. It serves the community as a museum.
The old home was originally built in 1849 for Justus Gombert. Although restored, it retains its original hand-made, sun-dried adobe home construction and cypress shingle roof. It was owned in 1859 by Joseph Zorn and in 1870, Benjamin McCulloch took possession of the house. This building is an example of a primitive home with its pioneer style kitchen and sod hewn cellar.
In 1951, the citizens of Seguin formed together to save and restore the old home and from this project was born the Seguin Conservation Society.
The first Seguin Post Office was located on the same property as the Los Nogales museum. Senator Juan Seguin helped establish a mail route to Seguin and Los Nogales has previously been referred to as the "Juan Seguin Post Office". The tree-top mail office was quite unique as it was operated from an old tree-house.
On March 24, 1972, the old building was placed on the National Register of Historic Places.
Los Nogales currently serves the community as a museum and is home to many local historical artifacts. The museum is occasionally open for tours.

  • Thank you to the docents and volunteers. It was a step back in time. The furniture arrangement allowed us to visualize the family life. It seemed that they had just stepped outside. The playhouse was so charming.
