    History in a Pecan Shell

    The state granted land here as early as 1847. John Twohig of San Antonio was the original owner. In 1879 J. C. W. Ingram bought six acres opened a store and applied for a post office under his name. The earliest settlers were farmers. The stands of Cypress trees along the river provided raw material for the shingle industry, and later sheep, goat and cattle ranches were established.

    The area had a reputation for having a healthy climate. When popular singer and celebrated consumptive Jimmy Rogers moved to Kerrville in the 1920s, the whole region got a boost as a health Mecca.
