The beginnings of Kendall County: In 1847, when Bavarian emigrant, Nicolaus Zink, settled on Pinta Trail land, he established himself as Kendall County's first settler and the first in the future Latin community of Sisterdale. Others followed, mostly German immigrants, bringing with them a strong desire for opportunity and the ideals of freedom.
Tusculum predated Boerne, which was plotted in 1852. The same year that Comfort was laid out, 1854, George Wilkins Kendall, an accomplished writer, publisher, and the founder of the New Orleans Picayune, expanded his new career of raising sheep, to a ranch near Boerne.

Holy Angels Academy Catholic School


The early German residents of Boerne would have their children first attend a local Catholic school for one or two years to be trained to learn about their religion. Holy Angels Academy began it's schooling in 1899. The Sisters of Charity of the Incarnate Word began the schools and also the medical facilities (sanitariums) in the Boerne area. This building was torn down in 1930.
