Tour Gonzales will help you explore the community that is home to the site of the firing of the first shot for Texas Independence and the “Come and Take It” challenge.
The 49 original blocks and seven public squares laid out in the shape of a Greek cross withstood the test of time and form the first Texas History Museum District.
Within the district are museums, historic homes, historic monuments and a thriving downtown made up of buildings built before and around 1900.
The GPS based Tour Gonzales app will guide you through a tour of seven museums, 30 historic homes, historic downtown, many parks, lakes, golf course, disc golf course and other recreation.
The app also provides information about hotels, historic bed and breakfasts, inns and guest cottages.
