San Juan, Texas

San Juan is located in the irrigated valley of the Rio Grande on the Missouri Pacific Railroad. The town was organized in 1909. The name was derived from a Spanish name given to the town organizer, John Closner. One of the South's largest plants for the manufacture of concrete irrigation pipe is located in San Juan. Colorful banks of scarlet bougainvillea edge the highway. On special days, San Juan invites visitors to "pick a grapefruit" for free.

Bed and breakfast accommodations are offered in the historic building.
