Ingram Texas History:
Ingram was founded on the Guadalupe River on land granted to John Twohig in 1847. In 1879, J.C.W. Ingram purchased 6 acres of the land and opened a store and post office. He named the settlement Ingram. The early settlers primarily farmed or made cedar shingles. Later, sheep, goat and cattle ranches contributed to the economy. During the 1920s, a resort business began to flourish. In 1932, a devastating flood forced Ingram to move to higher ground, 0.5 miles north of the original site. Ingram incorporated in 1981. Today hunting is an important industry, and includes exotics imported from foreign countries. Ingram is located on the north bank of the Guadalupe River at the confluence of Johnson and Indian Creeks, and at the intersection of SH 27 and SH 39, 6.6 miles west of Kerrville, 6.8 miles east of Hunt, and 31 miles southwest of Fredericksburg, Texas.
 
Historic Old Ingram, Texas Historical Marker Text:
“Settlers began arriving in this vicinity prior to the Civil War. In 1879 the Reverend J.C.W. Ingram, a Church of Christ minister from California, bought the land at this site from pioneer settler Abner McWhorter Morris. Ingram soon opened a general store and post office. A community grew around the store and thrived for fifty years as a commercial center. During the 1930s a new highway was constructed nearby, and the original townsite gradually was abandoned as businesses began to relocate. Today old Ingram is an arts center with studios, galleries, and craft and gift shops.”
