Overview

Introduction to Boerne, Texas

Boerne, Texas, in Kendall county, is 29 miles NW of San Antonio, Texas. The city is in the San Antonio metropolitan area.

Boerne History

The first settlers, who were a group of Germans from Bettina, pitched their tents on the banks of Cibolo Creek at a site a mile west of present day Boerne. The town was plotted in 1852 by Gustav Theissen and John James, who named Boerne after the German publicist and author Ludwig Boerne. The first post office was established in 1856, and Boerne was designated as county seat in 1862. It came to be regarded as a health resort. The San Antonio and Aransas Pass Railway came to the town in 1887, and Boerne was incorporated in 1909. The building of San Antonio Medical Center and the University of Texas near the town led to rapid growth of its population. Boerne continues to celebrate its Germanic antecedents.
