Zorn is an unincorporated community in northern Guadalupe County, Texas. Zorn is located on Texas State Highway 123 approximately 13 miles (21 km) north of the town of Seguin.


The small town of Zorn was named for the storekeeper Joseph Zorn. Joseph Zorn also served as mayor of Seguin from 1890 to 1910. In the late 1800s Zorn had a population of 150 and two grist mills. The present population is twenty-six.

Buried in Zorn is the Arkansas Democratic politician Monroe Schwarzlose, who polled 31 percent of the vote as a protest against Bill Clinton in the 1980 gubernatorial primary.
