Camp Verde, Texas. Camp Verde is on the north bank of Verde Creek six miles from Center Point in southeastern Kerr County. It grew around the Williams community store, established adjacent to Camp Verde in 1857 in order to serve the needs of soldiers stationed there. It is reported that the primary purpose of the store was to provide liquor to the soldiers because regulations prohibited the sale of intoxicants within the camp. When Williams's health failed in 1858, the store was acquired by Charles Schreiner. Since the store was open only on army paydays, Schreiner and his brother-in-law, Caspar Real, supplemented the business by contracting with the federal government to supply wood and beef to the military post.

A post office and store continued to provide irregular service to area inhabitants after the military camp was abandoned. Camp Verde's first post office was established in 1858. It discontinued operation in 1866.

Today the community remains a small unincorporated town. The community is like many in the area, distinct in there own history and a small, vital part of the county.
