About Saint Hedwig, TX
The town was founded by John Demmer in 1852 when he moved to the area from his native Silesia. In 1856, four more Silesians immigrated to the area and built the site's first Catholic Church, Annunciation (under the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of San Antonio) . In 1860, a post office named Cottage Hill was opened, but was later renamed St. Hedwig after the patron saint of Silesia. By 1868, the community had built a stone church, and in 1897, the town boasted 200 families mainly from Poland and Germany.
