Floresville (pop 8,513), the county seat of Wilson County, is thirty miles southeast of San Antonio along Hwy. 181. Settled by Canary Islander Don Francisco Flores de Abrego, the city was incorporated in 1890.
Supported by cotton and livestock related industries in its earliest days, the city today serves a market for the area’s peanut crop, small grains and cattle.
Youngsters in the area attend the Floresville Independent School District schools.
