History of Boerne

Founded in 1849 as Tusculum, the name was changed to Boerne when the town was platted in 1852. In 1849, a group of Free Thinker German colonists from Bettina camped on the north side of Cibolo Creek, about a mile west of the site of present Boerne. They named their new community after Cicero’s Tusculum home in ancient Rome. In 1852, John James and Gustav Theissen, who helped settle Sisterdale, platted the townsite, renamed it in honor of German author Karl Ludwig Börne, with the Anglicized spelling of Boerne. The town was not incorporated until 1909. Boerne is the county seat of Kendall County.

​History of Comfort 

Comfort was established in 1854 by German immigrants, who were Freethinkers and abolitionists. The downtown area is one of the best-preserved historic business districts in Texas. There are over 100 structures in the area dating back to the 1800s, and seven of them were designed by the noted architect Alfred Giles. Mr. Giles lived in San Antonio, and he would ride horses, the stagecoach, and later the train to check his building sites in Comfort. Most of the population today is composed of descendants of those original pioneer families of the 1850s and the 1860s.
