Hotels in Hallettsville, TX
In southern Texas, as you approach the Gulf Coast along Highway 77, you'll find Hallettsville. Directly north of Victoria, and just south of Schulenburg, Hallettsville is an attractive city and home of the Lavaca Historical Museum. The city is named for one of the first settlers in the area, John Hallett, who received a land grant from Stephen F. Austin in 1831. Most of the population that eventually settled in Hallettsville in the late nineteenth century immigrated from Czechoslovakia and Germany.
In 1887 the San Antonio and Aransas Pass Railway came to town, and soon Hallettsville became the principal trading center and shipping point for area farmers and ranchers. Hallettsville is known for hosting the annual Fiddlers' Frolic in Hallettsville – the largest fiddler contest in the world.
This friendly city is also found along the Eagle Ford Shale – an oil and gas formation in Texas' Western Gulf Basin.
