Since these humble beginnings, Castroville has grown to be recognized as a historic district on the National Register of Historic Places. It’s also a Certified Local Government in partnership with the Texas Historical Commission and the National Park Service, and was awarded the First Lady’s Texas Treasures Award. Castroville is a Preserve America City, including 97 historic American buildings which can be seen on-foot in a walking tour that features such sites as Henri Castro’s original homestead, the Landmark Inn State Historic Site, and the Tarde Hotel, to name a few. To this day, Castroville continues to be a hub of historical detail and a wonderful place in the Texas Hill Country to vacation, including unforgettable RV parks, situated on lush, natural acreage. The Castroville RV Park and the Alsatian Resort boast great serviced and pull-through sites and wonderful amenities. They’re also in close proximity to area features such as the Medina River, the Castro Regional Park (for those who love to hike, jog, or simply be amongst nature), local luxury features, and great dining.

There are also great things to do while visiting Castroville. Residents continue to celebrate St. Louis Day (each year, on August 22 or the weekend closest to that date), commemorating their patron saint, St. Louis IX of France. It’s one of many things this Texas Hill Country town has the privilege of celebrating. However, in advance of that celebration, Castroville holds a delightful annual Fourth of July gathering that focuses on family, friends, and the amazing appeal of small-town Lone Star State life. This year’s celebration has been divided into two wonderful events – making the most of weekend time with family and friends as well as the mid-week national holiday which is forthcoming.
