Nicaragua

Nicaragua was situated at the intersection of the old road leading east from Wofford Crossing and the San Antonio-Goliad Road, about two miles south of Helena in Karnes County. Its name may have been connected with the proslavery filibustering and short-lived dictatorship of William Walker in Nicaragua in 1855–57. Nicaragua was a place name on maps of Karnes County from 1859 to 1867.

Adapted from the official Handbook of Texas, a state encyclopedia developed by the Texas State Historical Association (TSHA). It is an authoritative source of trusted historical records.
