Learn more about Pleasanton

Famous for their “Live Oaks and Friendly Folks”, Pleasanton, Texas is one of the most beautiful sights in South Texas. Pleasanton is in Atascosa County and conveniently located on U.S. Highway 281, 30 miles south of San Antonio. The city has a comfortable annual average temperature of 70 degrees and the annual rainfall totals 26 inches.

Pleasanton honors its cowboy heritage with the “Mr. Cowboy” sculpture in front of City Hall and across from the giant oak tree downtown. The roots of the cattle kingdom can be traced to Atascosa County in the 1860s, which calls itself “The Birthplace of the Cowboy.” The sculpture is a gift from Ben and Mona Parker. The Longhorn Museum in east Pleasanton on Highway 97 contains artifacts and memorabilia of the cowboy years. The Cowboy Homecoming, begun in 1966, is an annual event held at the Atascosa River Park in Pleasanton.

Situated at the juncture of the Atascosa River and Bonita Creek, Pleasanton was founded in 1858 and named the county seat of Atascosa County. It was established because the former county seat at Amphion moved due to conflicts with the Indians. The settlers chose the current town site because of its location at the mouth of Bonita Creek. John Bowen San Antonio’s first Anglo-American postmaster, founded and named the town of Pleasanton after his good friend and fellow early Texas Settler John Pleasants. Pleasanton had a growing population of cowboys around the 19th century primarily to ward off attacks from the Indians. 

The county seat was moved from Pleasanton to Jourdanton in 1910. Pleasanton was incorporated in 1917.
