Texas Veterans Sleeve

Boerne offers a wealth of veteran services making it a popular place for Texas Veterans to call home.

Boerne was originally called Tusculum and was renamed in 1852. Today, it enjoys a charming small town feel and popularity with everyone from families to retirees. The city’s convenience to San Antonio’s military services including Joint Base San Antonio and the San Antonio Military Medical Center also make it a popular choice for military and veterans.

Boerne’s limestone courthouse, the second- oldest such structure in the state, was built in 1870 and still stands across the street from the current courthouse, which was built more than 100 years later. Also of interest is the polo ground, which still exists on Balcones Ranch. This was the site of one of the first polo matches ever played in the United States: an 1870s matchup between retired British army officers.
