Devine – Small City – Big Heart – Great Future
Devine is a small community that offers the country life. The City name “Devine” is known for the slogan “The Name Says It All”. Devine is known to be a Divine Place to live.
Devine was established in 1881 as a result of the rail extension of the International-Great Northern Railroad from San Antonio to Laredo.The town was named after Judge Thomas Jefferson Devine from San Antonio, who was a jurist and an attorney for the railroad. Devine was incorporated on October 15, 1907. The town’s close proximity to San Antonio has made it a choice location for those wishing to live near the city, but who still want to enjoy the peaceful atmosphere that a rural community can bring.
