Kyle, TX – Travis County

Population 31,760 // Official Website // Schools

Kyle is located 20 miles south of Austin in northeastern Hays County. The town was established in 1880 when David E. Moore and Fergus Kyle (for whom the town was named) deeded 200 acres for a town to the International-Great Northern Railroad. The railroad built a line from Austin to San Antonio, and settlers came from nearby Mountain City and Blanco. Residential lots were first sold in October 1880 at an auction held beneath a Live Oak tree at 204 Sledge Street. And thus began the rich history of the city of Kyle.

Since that time Kyle has been home to San Jacinto hero John Wheeler Bunton, American League baseball pitcher C. C. “Tex” Hughson, Ambassador Edwin J. Kyle, historian Milton Nance, Rhodes scholar Terrell Sledge, and authors Katherine Anne Porter and Lena Elithe Hamilton Kirkland. Another interesting distinction, Kyle had the only all-female government in Texas in the early 1940’s.

Kyle, located in the developing region between Austin and San Antonio, is now a booming community and home to thousands of citizens. You will find farming to the east and ranching to the west. And with a strategic location close to major highways, airports and rail, Kyle is the perfect place to live, work and play.
