Among these farms and ranches was Paradise Hill Farm and Cemetery located in Karnes County one mile northeast of Falls City on CR 237. Founded in 1903 by John W. Szalwinski. Current owner is Justin Wilbert Szalwinski, Sr.
“The families we honor today continue their ancestors’ legacies of nurturing and caring for the land,” Commissioner Staples said. “They truly represent the dreams of the pioneers who entered the Texas frontier and built the family farms and ranches that endure to this day. I congratulate these families for making Texas a leader in agriculture.”
