Comal County Texas

Comal County was created from portions of Bexar, Travis and Gonzales Counties on March 24,1846, and organized that year, being named for the Comal River. Its first settlers were Germans, being emigrants who came from the Fatherland with Prince Solms-Braunfels in 1846. Comal County, with New Braunfels as the county seat, was the center for the German colonization movement of the '40s. To the German people who came to Texas in the early years of that decade are due the founding and much of the subsequent growth and development of such splendid towns as New Braunfels, Fredericksburg, Kerrville, and for a long time the German population of San Antonio was, outside of the Mexicans, the largest national group and the most effective and substantial in citizenship and industry.  Comal and Guadalupe Rivers and a number of smaller streams furnish unfailing water. In the hilly section well and spring water is abundant; in the level portion wells are not easily obtained. The Comal River, rising in Landa's Park, bursts forth from a number of large springs one mile above New Braunfels, and forms at once a deep, bold stream, which, after a winding course of only three miles, flows Into the Guadalupe River, with a fall from its source of about 40 feet.
