HISTORY

Founded in 1919 Weslaco is full of History!

Historical Timeline

1919-1935

The City of Weslaco was founded by Ed C. Couch and R.L Reeves in September of 1919. Shortly after in December 1919 the two held an auction for residential and business land ranging from $50 to $400 a lot, by today’s standards that’s about $748 to $6,229.

At the start of 1920, the city offices were established, as well as the first store “The Peoples Store” by the S.M Mattar family. Only one year later the Weslaco Independent School District formed. In 1923 the Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Center was established. In 1926 the Beautification Committee was formed; they were responsible for purchasing the first of many palm trees down Texas Blvd.

On New Year’s Eve 1928 The Cortez Hotel opened its doors with a banquet and dance. In 1932 the Texsun and Tex Maid companies started production, at the time the Texsun juice plant was the largest orange juice plant in the world!

On October 21 1935 the official charter for the Weslaco Area Chamber of Commerce was filed, the founding directors were C.L Skaggs, T.G. Cressner, J.M. Sewell, L.M. Burton, Sam R. Weems, Everett Knapp, Judson Friday, J.J. Poinbeouf & Grant Montgomery.
