Gonzales, Texas Demographics

Gonzales was the site of the first battle of the Texas Revolution on October 2, 1835.  The internationally recognized sign of freedom, the Come and Take IT flag was born from that battle.  Today, Gonzales still boasts its place in the Texas Revolution but is also home to some significant business and industry including Adams Extract & Spice, Southern Clay, Purina, Tyson and Kitchen Pride Mushroom Farm.   The Texas Gonzales Northern Rail serves the area with connections to Union Pacific and the Port of Houston.  The City is the County Seat for Gonzales County.  The Gonzales Memorial Museum, built by the State of Texas in celebration of the Texas Centennial in 1936, houses the original Come & Take It Cannon.  Gonzales is located 15 miles south of Interstate Highway 10, 70 miles east of San Antonio, 70 miles south of Austin and 130 miles west of Houston, Texas.
