Welcome to the

Hallettsville Block Party!

The idea behind this website is to document the development of Hallettsville, Texas, block by block, beginning with the original town site. With the use of photographs, original documents and maps we will begin the journey in 1846 when the early settlers of Lavaca County began the process of establishing their homes and their businesses on the Hallet League on the east bank of the Lavaca River.

Welcome to our story…

How we got started!
