Sebastopol House State Historic Site

Sebastopol House State Historic Site is a Greek Revival style house located in Seguin, Texas, United States. Joshua W. Young built the house between 1854 and 1856 for his sister, Catherine LeGette. Sebastopol House was listed on the National Register of Historic Places on August 25, 1970 as a result of its unusual Park's limecrete construction. The house's construction is entirely unreinforced cast-in-place concrete and is one of the oldest structures in the state using this building method.

Joseph Zorn, Jr. bought the house in 1874 and it remained in the Zorn family until 1961. Zorn was mayor of Seguin from 1890 to 1910.

The Texas Parks and Wildlife Department acquired the park by purchase in 1976 from the Seguin Conservation Society and opened it to the public in September 1989 following restoration. The house is restored to its 1880 appearance.
