Welcome to Gonzales

Gonzales is one of the most historic towns in Texas and where the first shot was fired in the battle for Texas independence! Whether you are here to follow the Independence Trail, visit our historic sites, see the wildflowers, shop for antiques or collectibles or try our famous barbecue, we invite you to stop by the Visitor Information Center at the Chamber of Commerce office in the Old Jail Museum and pick up information on all the sights to see here!
