Converse Texas History:
In 1877, Southern Pacific Railroad engineer Major Converse purchased land that is now the current Converse townsite. The town was named after him. The Converse post office was granted in 1878. The town was slow to grow. Current growth reflects the town’s proximity to San Antonio. Converse incorporated in 1961.
