Robstown was originally built by entrepreneur Sam Hinkle, who is said to have constructed the first courthouse in Texas, at the time, on land that he bought (it was later turned into a park). According to legend, Hinkle was so impressed with Robstown’s amazing prosperity that he began buying up other properties around the area, just so that he could become involved in the development. Hinkle built a Texas National Bank branch in Robstown, which he named Waverly Trust. Sam Hinkle died in World War II, never having seen his once-great town of Robstown, Texas. Yet despite his passing, Waverly Trust and Robstown, Texas is still beloved by residents and tourists alike. The Texas State Lottery also uses Robstown as one of its playing sites.
