Founded in 1852 by German settlers and located slightly less than 45 miles southeast of Kerrville, and less than 25 minutes travel time from the suburban centers and amenities of San Antonio, Boerne has become a major tourist destination. The city's popularity is based on the establishment of many quaint shops offering antique and eclectic shopping in the historic downtown section.
Boerne mixes its historic past and small-town ambiance with new city folk who are seeking an area where natural beauty abounds and where the quality of life and open-space environments are valued. Once called the key to the hills, Boerne is situated on the east side of Interstate 10 about 22 miles northwest of San Antonio.
The downtown area has a number of small businesses, quaint shops, and period buildings / neighborhoods which reflect the city's proud legacies. Part of the legacy also includes the historic Plaza where the community still congregates for concerts, festivals, and commerce. The community has a strong focus on providing high-quality services to both long-term and new residents alike. The city has six parks with organized sports and recreational opportunities in abundance. High school and youth sports draw large, enthusiastic, and friendly crowds.
Boerne Independent School District serves the city of Boerne, the southern part of Kendall County, the city of Fair Oaks Ranch, and parts of northern Bexar County. Approximately 6300 students are enrolled on nine campuses including two high schools, two middle schools and five elementary schools.
