Cypress Trail Professional Review and Guide
"The Cibolo Nature Center is an example of successful efforts by a local community to rescue and restore a neglected and degraded natural area adjacent to fast-growing urban sprawl. Boerne, once a small German settlement with a deep Texas heritage, has become a commuter community for San Antonio. Disappearing along with its distinct rural charm is its natural environment. Surrounded by classic Central Texas Hill Country, Boerne was settled by German Freethinkers in the mid-1800s. In addition to building many of the beautiful limestone structures that survive today, these free-thinkers also refused to allow churches or established religions within the community. In fact, anecdotal history claims that signs were posted beyond the city limits warning traveling preachers that they would be shot if attempting to remain in town after sundown."
