History on a Pinhead

Formerly known as Perryman's Crossing (on Cibolo Creek), the site was on the Gonzales to San Antonio Road - built well before the Texas Revolution. The site was little more than a ford on the creek when Ferdinand Zuehl bought the property in the early 1870s and build a store. In the early 1880s the Clemens School was opened and a post office was granted later that decade (1888). The post office at first used the name "School, Texas" but in 1906 it was changed to Zuehl. It remained open four more years after the change of name. Zuehl reached its high-water mark in1945 with a population of 175.
An auxilliary airfield for Randolph Field was built at Zuehl during WWII and was later turned into a private airfield. Aerial sequences for the 1975 Robert Redford movie The Great Waldo Pepper were filmed at Zuehl.

The 1990 population was estimated near 50. The Redeemer Cemetery is shown as being the nearest to the community.
