Kyle, Texas
Kyle Texas History:
Kyle was founded in 1880 when Fergus Kyle and David Moore donated 200 acres to the International-Great Northern Railroad for a station and right-of-way for their line between Austin and San Marcos. Town lots were auctioned under the “Kyle Auction Oak Tree.” Within the year Kyle had four saloons and a newspaper. Kyle incorporated in 1895, dis-incorporated in 1887, and reincorporated in 1906. Several fires over the years destroyed many of Kyle’s old buildings. Many Kyle residents commute to Austin or San Marcos for work.
