HISTORY OF KYLE TX
Kyle was founded in 1880 by settlers from the nearby towns of Blanco and Mountain City. The city was named after Fergus Kyle who, along with the family of David Moore, deeded 200 acres of land for a town shortly after the International-Great Northern Railroad built a line from Austin to San Marcos. In 1928, Kyle was officially incorporated as a general-law city with a mayor and 5 council seats. Mary Kyle Hartson, daughter to the city’s founder, was elected mayor in 1937 through a write-in vote. In the 1940s, Kyle had the only all-woman government in the city of Texas, rather noteworthy for the place and time. Today, Kyle has over 30,000 residents and continues to grow and evolve. Kyle is the 5th fastest growing city in Texas, with an annual growth rate of 125%. Being a 20 minute drive from Austin and under an hour to San Antonio gives commuters and families easy access to big city jobs while preserving the small town surroundings.
