History, antiques and the Sabinal Canyon Museum .

Sabinal: The city of Sabinal is located 20 miles northeast of Uvalde at the intersection of U.S. 90 and Highway 187 and shares the peaceful Sabinal River with Utopia. The city was settled in 1854, and in 1856 the Second United States Cavalry established Camp Sabinal there. Largely an agricultural center, the area today is known for bowhunting, antiques, and handmade mesquite furniture. Stop in for a treat at the old-time soda fountain at the pharmacy. Sabinal’s charming downtown, historic buildings, city park, restaurants, and shops will be of interest.
