Life in Spring Branch, TX: Your Next Hometown

August 24, 2021

Are you on the hunt for the right neighborhood in southern Texas? Consider living in Spring Branch. Spring Branch has plenty to offer—close proximity to the city, great schools, beautiful views, and spectacular hill country living. As a local homebuilder, Weston Dean Custom Homes knows the benefits of living in Spring Branch. Here’s why many people have chosen it as their hometown.

Spring Branch’s history

Hans Heinrich Dietrich Knibbe, Spring Branch’s first pioneer, established a homestead in 1852 on land purchased for one dollar per acre. His family developed six farms between 1854 and 1856 and equally divided them along opposite banks of Spring Creek, a spring-fed creek which flowed into the Guadalupe River. The first Post Office in the area was established on July 1, 1858, and they adopted the name Spring Branch. Since its humble beginnings, Spring Branch has grown into a bustling town that’s home to many!

What to do in Spring Branch 

Just an arm’s reach from San Antonio and Austin, Spring Branch is situated “Smack Dab in the Texas Hill Country.” It’s located in Comal County, which is the second fastest-growing county in the U.S. with a population of 141,009 in 2017. It provides a variety of outdoor activities for the whole family to enjoy: swim, fish, tube, camp and canoe at Guadalupe River State Park, or take a guided tour through Honey Creek State Natural Area. Not to mention that Spring Branch is only 15 miles south of Canyon Lake, the jewel of Comal County and the Central Texas Hill Country. With breathtaking waterfront views, Canyon Lake has much to offer, including Boating/Sailing, Water Skiing, Kayaking, Fishing, Scuba Diving, Helicopter Tours, and much more. The lake is loaded with fun opportunities, and provides a variety of campgrounds and clubs. It has a surface area of 8,230 acres, and releases water downstream into the famous Guadalupe River.

The Spring Branch Area is served by the Comal Independent School District (CISD). It’s recognized as being “highly desirable” with a family friendly environment and first-class instructional programs.
