Trade schools in san antonio

San Marcos, Texas, which is 29 miles south of Austin and 47 miles northwest of San Antonio, is a beautiful, small city with a rich history. The San Marcos area is considered to be the oldest continuously inhabited site in the Northern Hemisphere, although the descendants of today's residents settled the area in the 1800s.

In 1689, the San Marcos River was named for St. Mark after Alonso de Leon's men discovered the river on the celebration of St. Mark's Day, and named the river in his honor. Later, in April of 1808, a group of Mexican families settled in the area, and an agricultural community was established shortly thereafter.

In 1812, after numerous floods and raids by local Indians, the settlement was disbanded, but in November of 1848 a group of Anglo settlers tried to establish a community on the site again, and in 1851, the town center was laid out. The county of Hays was established in 1848 by the Texas Legislature, and the city of San Marcos was named county seat a short time later.san antonio 

The small city was primarily a gin milling and agricultural community until the early 1880s, when the railroad arrived and the cattle and cotton industries flourished, which caused the city to become a commercial center with easy access to transportation for businessmen and travelers.

In 1899, a college for school teachers opened, and was called the Southwest Texas State Normal School, which is known today as Texas State University. In 1907, another school was established in the area, the San Marcos Baptist Academy, which was a private institution, and which is still open today. In the following years, Texas State University, which was known as Southwest Texas State at the time, became an important regional school, and after other educational facilities opened over the years, including the Gary Job Corps Training Center in the 1960s, education became the largest industry in San Marcos.
