Boerne (pronounced Bernie) grew from a village called Tusculum laid out in 1849. It was formally established by German pioneer settlers in 1851, and named for a German political writer.
In and around the area, fishermen find fortunes in Hill Country lakes and streams. Hunters seek white-tailed and axis deer, wild boar, turkey, native and migratory game birds.
