What Is the History of San Marcos, Texas?
Although archaeologists have found evidence that the land around San Marcos was inhabited by indigenous tribes as long as 12,000 years ago, there were no written records until a Spanish expedition arrived in 1689. These explorers named the river that they found the San Marcos. The region remained largely uninhabited until after the turn of the 19th century. A group of settlers from Mexico arrived in 1808 and founded a community that incorporated the name of the river. However, after four years of floods, wolf attacks on livestock, conflicts with the Native Americans, and intermittent dry spells that bordered on droughts, the settlers moved on, leaving the area very sparsely populated until Anglo settlers began arriving in 1846. During the early years, the town’s economy revolved around the grinding and milling of locally grown agricultural products, and agriculture remained an important part of the local economy after the railroad reached San Marcos in 1881. The population continued to grow, going from 741 in 1870 to 4,527 in 1920. World War II ushered in significant changes, including the establishment of the San Marcos Army Air Field in 1942, which help boost and diversify the local economy. Today, the educational and tourism industries are important parts of the city’s economy.
