Spring Branch Texas History:
Rancher D. Knibble and his family settled in the area in 1852. The town that developed was named for the Guadalupe River feeder creek that flows through the town. The Spring Branch post office was established in the Knibble store in 1858. The population remained around 25 until Canyon Lake was completed in the mid-1960s. After the lake formation, new and old residents began establishing businesses to serve the nearby lake visitors. The Cypress Springs housing development is located in the area. Guadalupe River State Park and the Honey Creek State Natural Area are located just outside of Spring Branch.

Historic Specht's Crossing, Texas Historical Marker Text:
“Area settlers in horse-drawn carriages used this gravel bed low water crossing of the San Antonio-Blanco Road to reach the German settlement of Spring Branch. Despite frequent floods, use of the crossing increased during the years (1875-1906). Spring Branch postmaster Hans (Von) Specht maintained the post office in his hilltop home overlooking the crossing. Thereafter known as Specht's Crossing, it was later used by automobile travelers until replaced by a low water bridge in 1920. In 1934 a new bridge was constructed by the Civil Works Administration.” The crossing is located just west of the Spring Branch Road Bridge over Spring Branch Creek, 4.5 mi. west of the Spring Branch community.
