History


Texas is known for its history. The entire state is one that the settlers had to fight for to ensure it became a part of the United States and stayed that way. This border town is no different. It is believed that the early Spaniards held a mass here on St. Phillips Day in 1635 so in 1883 when the post office in town was to be erected, the residents asked for the post office to be named San Felipe del Rio but since there was already a San Felipe de Austin they decided that the full name would cause too much confusion so the San Felipe was dropped from the name.

Parks and Recreation

The parks and rec department here holds a lot of responsibility. Not only are they in charge of youth and adult activities like little guy football, they are also in charge of maintaining all of the city’s parks, recreation centers and pools. With the abundance of nature throughout the city, there are always outdoor activities in and around town. If you cannot find what you are looking for through Parks and Rec, you will likely find it through the Chamber of Commerce.
