Authentic. Historic. Zuehl, Texas.

Zuehl Saloon is a traditional Texas-style ice house, honky tonk, and neighborhood bar. The Saloon occupies one of the last remaining buildings of the original Zuehl, Texas community established in 1872. The building has housed a meat market, a general store, and several bars over the years.  The Zuehl countryside attracts motorcyclists, bicyclists, and sightseers. The area is home to original German settlers, farmers, pilots, and general life enthusiasts.

Zuehl is an unincorporated rural community located on the Cibolo Creek, fourteen miles southwest of Seguin in southwestern Guadalupe County.  The site was once known as Perryman’s Crossing and was part of the Wood Road, which was built before 1830 between Gonzales and San Antonio.  Ferdinand Zuehl bought the land in 1870, and in 1872, he opened Zuehl’s Store, from which the settlement took its name.  In 1883, the Clemens School was founded, with one teacher and fifty-two students (as reported in 1904).  A post office was opened in 1888, and the name of the town was changed to School.  In 1906, the post office reverted back to the original Zuehl name, which survived despite the post office closure in 1910.  In 1945, it was reported the town had seven stores and a population of 175.  Forty-nine residents were reported in 1990; the most recent census information indicates 362 residents.  The community also is nearby the site of a private airfield which was once a satellite training airfield to Randolph Air Force Base.
