Day of unveiling - October 28, 2000
The detailed bronze was still hot enough for Seguin Town Historian Charley Eckhardt to (respectfully) light a cigar from it. Mr. Eckhardt, who was giving us a personal walking tour of Seguin, took time out to call our attention to details in Mr. Seguin's equipment that we certainly would have missed. We have no details on the foundry, cost or how long this project was in the works, but will be glad to include more on this newest addition to Texas' bronze pantheon as the information becomes available to us.

Juan Seguin's grave is here in Seguin as well.
