History of Early Cibolo, Texas

A friend of mine and I started working on a short book on the history of Cibolo, Texas about two years ago.  The book is finished and we have taken it to the publisher to see about publishing it.  Will keep you posted.

Although rich in history Cibolo has taken a back seat to the surrounding towns. Until recently with the booming building of homes Cibolo was a quiet town twenty miles north east of San Antonio.  The Wichita, Karankawa, Caddo, Lipan, and Tonkewa Indian Tribes liked the grassy banks and hidden spots and made their camps in and around Cibolo several months in the summer.

Many streets are named after the early settlers like Borgfeld, Pfeil, Schlather, and Pfanstiel.  Schools carry their names, Schlater, Weiderstein, and Bracken.  Parks like Niemetz named after Admiral Niemetz.  The list goes on.

So stay tuned for more info on publishing and information on Cibolo.
