History

Ciudad Guerrero was founded in 1750, as Villa del Señor San Ignacio de Loyola de Revilla but later was named after the second President of Mexico Vicente Guerrero. The city served for a short time as the capital of the Republic of the Rio Grande in 1840.

The city name of City of New Guerrero follows the Old Guerrero City (Antigua Guerrero) that was located on the original banks of the Rio Grande. Old Guerrero was flooded after the construction of Falcon Dam, and moved south to its current location on the current shoreline of Falcon Lake. The original Church is partially above water and may still be viewable on the Salado Arm of the lake.
