KERRVILLE, Texas – Vintage photos give an inside look at Kerrville from as far back as the 19th century.
Kerrville was founded in 1889, according to the city’s website, and was settled by German pioneers.
“Kerrville is best known for its beautiful parks such as Kerrville-Schreiner Park, Louise Hays Park and Flat Rock Park that line the Guadalupe River which runs directly through the City,” the city website states.
