Home to vast cattle ranches, Atascosa County, lies Southwest of San Antonio and is synonymous with Texas' iconic image. Throughout the middle of the nineteenth century, settlers established ranches and farms across the region to satisfy the demands for cattle in Chicago and the Northeast. Cattle ranching was surpassed in the 1870s by the export of cotton, and by 1900, it would be the primary driver for the local economy. As Texas Land Commissioner, William C. Walsh was responsible for shaping the state's future, including the construction of the State Capital and original surveys and land allocation for the University of Texas, Austin. He was also responsible for the use of native limestone in the construction of the now-iconic capitol building. Though Walsh was born in Ohio, his family relocated to Texas when he was four, and his role in Texas history cannot be understated.
The region was settled primarily by German and English immigrants. Immigration was facilitated in 1881 when an extension of the Great Northern Railway was completed in the northern corner of the County. By the year of this map's publication, there were nearly six hundred established farms and ranches in the region. The architecture reflected the influence of the German and English settlers.
In the years following the conclusion of the Civil War, the nation experienced a period of great prosperity, and this was no different in Atascosa County. As nearby San Antonio grew into a flourishing metroplex, the region remained predominantly agricultural and retained its unique culture.
