General Cepeda in Coahuila, Mexico - Tour By Mexico ® General Cepeda received its current name decree in 1892 in honor of General Victoriano Cepeda Camacho. Governor at the time, Cepeda Camacho was also originally from Coahuila.

This area is still remembered for being the San Francisco de los Patos country estate (1575) of Francisco de Urdiñola, the largest landowner in the country and known by some for his cruelty to the people.

Now, General Cepeda, known for the numerous archaeological discoveries that have been made in this region, the town is part of this Mexican province where time appears to stand still.
