"Sweet Home is south of Mustang Creek in west Lavaca County. It was named when the first settlers found the conditions there ideal for home life... Around 1873 Czechs and Germans began to move into the community. In 1887, the San Antonio and Aransas Pass Railway built five miles south of the town, ... and by 1890 the new community of Sweet Home had six stores."
