    Miscellaneous

    • Newly constructed facilities opened in Spring 2006
    • The site planning and the architecture were influenced by the wooded sites and the local vernacular construction (minimum disturbance to the existing natural habitats, full height lobby windows provide transparency between the inside and outside spaces, limestone structure with exposed structural roof truss framing provides deeply shaded porches)
    • The nearby town, Seguin, was named after Juan Seguín, a political and military figure of the Texas Revolution and Republic of Texas
    • Guadalupe County gets its name from the Guadalupe River, which Alonso de Leon named in 1689 in honor of the Lady of Guadalupe depicted on his standard
