WANDERER'S RETREAT

WANDERER'S RETREAT. Wanderer's Retreat, on the old New Braunfels-Seguin road in northwestern Guadalupe County, was the estate of Jacob De Cordova, who surveyed the eleven-league grant of Antonio Esnaurrizar, cut the lands into several hundred farms, and superintended their sale. The estate supposedly received the name Wanderer's Retreat because De Cordova welcomed adventurers, many of whom stayed on as cowboys.
