German immigrants established the Kendall County towns of Sisterdale in 1847, Tusculum (Boerne) in 1849, Curry’s Creek in 1850, and Comfort in 1854. Most of the Kendall County area was part of Bexar County established by the Republic of Texas in 1836; it later became part of Kerr County, which was separated from Bexar in 1856. Comfort served as county seat of Kerr County for two years before Kendall County was formed. In 1859 residents of Boerne and Sisterdale petitioned the legislature for a new county; the legislature granted the petition in 1862, and the new county, carved from Kerr and Blanco counties, was named in honor of George Wilkins Kendall. Kendall County was formed on January 1, 1862.
Kendall County was the 5th fastest growing county by percentage in the U.S. from 2010 to 2019* and continues to grow at a rapid pace.
