Stewart, Which Has A Rich History In Texas, Was Founded In Galveston In 1893. (Photo: Business Wire)

“We’re proud of all our historic businesses,” said Rep. Anderson. “These are businesses that give back to their communities, not just in job growth and expanded tax revenues, but as friends and neighbors who people come to depend on year after year.”

Stewart, which has a rich history in Texas, was founded in Galveston in 1893 by Maco Stewart. Maco’s father, William Henry Stewart, was a member of the Constitutional Convention that formulated the Constitution of 1876 for Texas, which is still in use today. He wrote the resolution that provided the financial plan for building the present Capitol Building in Austin. He was later named “Father of the State Capitol of Texas.”

“It is a privilege for us to recognize our long-established businesses that have remained committed to Texans for generations, while creating jobs and stimulating economic growth,” said THC Chairman Matt Kreisle. “May this recognition serve to increase your success and productivity for many years to come.”

Texas Treasure Business Awards are made throughout the year with the support of state legislators. For more information about the Texas Treasure Business Award, contact the THC at 512.463.6100 or visit www.thc.state.tx.us.
