Medina County Texas
Medina County is immediately west of Bexar County in southwest Texas. It was created from Bexar County and organized on August 7, 1848. The earliest settlement in Medina county was Castroville which was founded in 1844. Quihi was settled in 1845, followed by Vandenburg and New Fountain in 1846 and D'Hanis in 1848. The original county seat was Castroville, but it was moved to Hondo in 1892.Photo by Larry D. Moore CC BY-SA 3.0.MEDINA COUNTY COURTHOUSE
