Schertz Texas History
Today, the City of Schertz and Crossvine announced the completion of "Schertz now," a 25-minute documentary documenting the history of the founding family and the history of the city in the early 20th century. The plot of the documentary covers the life and times of Scherztz's founders, from the first settlers to the present-day inhabitants and visitors. The themes range from childhood in ScherZtz to the beginnings as a small town in Texas. Documentaries tell us what it was like growing up in Scheritz in 1900.
The early 19th century in the United States marked the beginning of a new era of economic development and growth in Schertz, Texas. The arrival of the US Army Corps of Engineers in San Antonio boosted the economy of Scherztz and surrounding communities, as well as the city itself. When John Cibolo and his family came to San Jose from CIBolo, Calif., in 1877, they brought economic development and growth.
This is how the development of the historical sites around the municipality came about, which are reflected in the Scherzinger Rathaus, Schertz-Altkreis and the historic town centre.
Other historical sites include the famous Alamo, which remains a protected site, the reconstructed Spanish Governor's Palace and the replica Spanish settlement in the city centre. The trail starts in downtown King William and winds through the city center and ends at the old Texas Mission, built in 1690. Other sites such as the Scherzinger Rathaus, Schertz - Altkreis and Scherzbach, founded in 1978, have been preserved and were collectively declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2015.
Schertz is a member of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and the Texas Department of Public Safety. Schools serving this section of the school include Schertz High School, the University of Texas at San Antonio, Scherzinger Ridge Elementary School and a number of private schools. ResponsiveEd, a charter management organization founded in 1998, also operates schools to rehabilitate and prevent dropouts, including a private charter school for low-income students in the city. It promotes and offers a wide range of educational opportunities for students of all ages, from kindergarten to 12th grade, as well as a variety of professional programs.
The Marion Koogler McNay Art Museum houses a remarkable collection of modern French paintings. The Witte Museum houses Texas artifacts and hosts annual events, including the Schertz Art Festival and the Scherzinger Ridge Festival of Art.

The Old No. 9 Trail leads through the heart of Boernes on a path once used by Native Americans to cross the Texas Hill Country. The San Pedro Creek Trail serves the west side of San Antonio as part of the Howard Peak Greenway Trail System, which includes more than 2,500 miles of hiking trails. I-35 is 31 miles southeast and the homestead is in the center of Schertz, where the quiet beauty of a rugged landscape has attracted settlers for centuries.
In the northwest corner of San Antonio, the Culebra Creek - Helotes Greenway Trail offers a scenic walk along the western edge of Cibolo Creek, named after the Creek Helote and Culesbra. The hike is only complemented by its proximity to the San Pedro Creek Trail and the Old No. 9 Trail. Bur'nee (pronounced "Bur'n - nee") is the name of the first stream in Schertz, a small stream on the west side of the Scherzburg. It is named after the first post office in the town and was once the "Cibolos pit" (cut off at that time) because it separated the settlement in the event of flooding.
On Good Friday, March 25, 1845, the Schertz family arrived in Neu Braunfels. After being exhausted by the long journey and losing two family members, they decided to return to Europe. On the way they met Prince Carl Solms of Braunfels, who was on his way to establish a colony that would later bear the name "Neu Braunfeles." The route was led by Prince Carl, himself a member of the royal family of Germany, and his wife.
When they approached Prince Solms of Braunfels, he promised those who joined his colony that they would do the same to the Schertz and other families. With their determination they were promised a good life in the colony and a future in Germany.
Schertz accepted the offer and came to what is now Neu Braunfels and was one of the first to help with the settlement.
