“Texas history buff wonder”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 September 2008

The house lay abandoned while I was growing up. We would go over and play in and under the old structure. We knew it was historically important just by looking but no one seemed to want to take on the restoration. In 1976, long after I left Seguin to join the Navy, the Texas Parks and Wildlife Dept. acquired the park and house opening it to be public in 1989 after a complete restoration.

Sebastopol is an 1856 Greek Revival-style house sitting on 2.2 acres of its original 4-acre site and listed now as a Registered Texas Historic Landmark as well as in the National Register of Historic Places. Exhibits inside explain the original construction, the restoration process, and the history of the house and its inhabitants. Selected LeGette and Zorn family furnishings are displayed demonstrating the tastes of middle-class families of the late nineteenth century.

For history buffs, especially Texas, it is a gem.
