Seguin is a city in Guadalupe County, Texas, in the United States. As of the 2010 census, the city population was 25,175. It is the county seat of Guadalupe County.

Seguin was founded in 1838 by members of Mathew Caldwell's Gonzales Rangers on land originally granted to Umphries (or Humphries) Branch by the Mexican government, but was not incorporated until 1853. Its original name was Walnut Springs but was changed just six months later to honor Juan Seguín.

Since 1912, Seguin has been the home of Texas Lutheran University.  Seguin is the location of the historic Wilson Pottery site; the first freed slave business in Texas. Seguin is also home to the Sebastopol House; built in 1856, it is a Texas Historical Commission Landmark and is in the National Register of Historic Places due to its unusual limecrete construction and architectural style. Another popular attraction is the Texas Agricultural Education and Heritage Center, where visitors may learn the mechanics and history of farming in the state of Texas.

Seguin is a large producer of pecans and is often attributed the nickname "Pecan Capital of Texas." The city erroneously boasts of having the "World's Largest Pecan," a five feet long, two-and- a-half feet wide concrete pecan located in front of the county courthouse, a distinction that actually belongs to Brunswick, Missouri. However, the city recently announced plans to build a pecan-shaped sculpture substantially larger than the one in Missouri, which would allow the city to reclaim its distinction as having the world's largest pecan.

Seguin is the setting of the 1994 Janice Woods Windle historical novel True Women and the 1997 CBS miniseries adaptation, True Women, starring Dana Delaney and Angelina Jolie. True Women is a story about pioneer women who settled in Seguin and surrounding areas, and covers the trials and tribulations they went through.
