La Vernia Historical Society, La Vernia, Wilson County, TX

Early settlers from Spain and Mexico were the first to claim the tribal lands of Native Americans along the Cibolo. The Republic days of Texas in the 1840s witnessed the creation of settlements in the area when the first wave of settlers came from the Old South in hopes of establishing cotton plantations, followed closely by immigrants from the Prussian Empire, including Germans and Polish. The settlement was initially given the name, “Post Oak” but 1859, it was discovered another town already had the name, it was officially changed to “Lavernia.” The unusual history of the beautiful Italian name can be found in issue #1 of Lavernia Legacies.  Read More
