Jim Hogg County Courthouse

The 1913 Jim Hogg County Courthouse is the only courthouse the county has ever had. Designed by San Antonio architect Henry T. Phelps, it has been remodeled several times and it's an icon in the Hebbronville skyline.

Vaquero Capitol of Texas and the USA

Since 1883 Hebbronville has enjoyed a solid reputation as the country’s largest cattle-shipping center and, to this day, the area still stands as a major ranching center. This explains why Hebbronville also holds the title of “Vaquero Capitol of Texas and the USA”.

Scotus College

In 1926, Scotus College, a Franciscan seminary moved to Hebbronville from Mexico to escape persecution. It could accommodate up to twenty students preparing for the priesthood.

Jim Hogg County Fair

The Jim Hogg County Fair is the longest running festival in the county.

The Jim Hogg County Fair was officially organized under the name “The Jim Hogg County Fair Association” on May 24, 1985 however the annual event dates back much further.
 
In 1985, Mr. E.G. Nava was elected as its first president. In this same year, Marissa Ramirez was crowned Miss Jim Hogg County Queen. Shortly thereafter, in 1987, The Little Mr. and Miss Jim Hogg County was introduced with Albert Pena and Leslie Garza taking the title. In 1988 The Jim Hogg County Fair Association began recognizing local ranchers for their continuous support and generosity and named Ascension Martinez as the Rancher of the Year. With no permanent facilities to call its own, the County Fair used whatever facilities it could to hold its show. In its early days, the American Legion once a year became known as the Fairgrounds.
