SYCAMORE, TEXAS (Guadalupe County). The Sycamore community, between Darst and Nash creeks in eastern Guadalupe County, was one of the first rural sections of the county to be settled. Jacob C. Darst and Ira Nash received land grants in this area in 1831. Because the land was fertile and accessible to Gonzales, it was settled early. After the establishment of Seguin in 1838, however, most settlers chose to live closer to more inhabited areas, and the Sycamore community never developed beyond a small collection of widely scattered homes.
