Why is our name 1519? What does it mean?

Pineda's map is the first known document of Texas history and the first map of the Gulf Coast region.

Alonso Alvarez de Pineda, a Spanish explorer and cartographer, created the first map of Texas and the Gulf Coast region. In early 1519, Pineda left Jamaica and sailed west toward the tip of Florida.  Pineda followed the Gulf coastline from the Florida Keys and eventually sailed into a lush semi-tropical bay, which he named Corpus Christi Bay. Pineda’s expedition established important boundaries of the Gulf of Mexico including the verification that Florida was a peninsula instead of an island.  He was the first European to see the coastal areas of western Florida, Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana, and Texas.

1519’s approach to business is representative of Pineda’s legacy, an innovative explorer who accurately defined important boundaries while demonstrating the highest standards of integrity.
