SHINER, TEXAS
The valley between the Lavaca and Guadalupe rivers began as an Indian settlement called “Half Moon.” In 1885, near the present site of Shiner, a post office was opened at a trading post. It was called Half Moon and was bypassed in 1887 by San Antonio and Aransas Pass Railway. A town grew up around 250 acres donated by Henry B. Shiner for a right-of-way and depot. The town was called New Half Moon until 1888 when the name was changed to Shiner.
