Nestled at the intersections of Interstate 10, U.S. Highway 90, Texas Highway 36, and main lines for the BNSF Railroad and the Union Pacific Railroad, Sealy is the economic hub of Austin County and the largest city in Austin County. Our prime location allows quick access to major metropolitan areas and key transportation corridors while providing a relaxing, semi-rural atmosphere for you and your family.

Texas’ rich history starts here in the early 1820s with the original Mexican land grant to Moses Austin, which was settled by the “Old Three Hundred” under the leadership of Moses’ son, Stephen F. Austin. Nearly 60 years later, Sealy was founded on part of that original land grant. Since then, our rich and colorful history has grown – and continues to grow. I encourage you to not only visit the history page on our website and other websites about our local history, but to also personally visit the historical sites in and around Sealy.

If you are looking to start or relocate a business, Sealy is for you. I encourage you to visit the Sealy Economic Development Corporation’s website and visit with the EDC’s executive director. Find out what Sealy has to offer!

We look forward to seeing you in our great community!

Mayor, City of Sealy
