    History in a Pecan Shell

    Named after St. Isidore of Seville (Patron Saint of Farmers), the town was formed with the arrival of the first settler (see Forum below) in 1877.

    A Catholic church was constructed around 1900 and a post office operated from 1904 to 1913. A new church was built in 1963, and a twelve-grade school consolidated several northern Starr County schools. The post office was opened in 1948.

    Today San Isidro is the leading community in northern Starr county.

    San Isidro, Texas Forum

    The post office in the picture was not built till the 1980's. The other post office was across the street. My grandmother was the postmaster general for 40 years. The founder is not Santiago Peña but in fact Blas Pena Gonzales - died 1905 and buried in his ranch family plot in San Isidro Tx. Hope this was helpfull. - Arturo Silva, August 23, 2011
