Cibolo, Texas. Cibolo is located sixteen miles west of Seguin in the western portions of Guadalupe County. Cíbolo is Spanish for "buffalo." The banks of Cibolo Creek are quite steep, in fact there were few places where pioneers could find a safe crossing before the development of bridges.

History states that Indians stampeded buffalo over the banks to disable them so they could be slaughtered. Jacob Schlather bought land in the area in 1867, and his son George built a store to supply neighboring settlers, who were mostly German. The store was sold to Charles Fromme in 1882, and the settlement became known as Fromme's Store. When the Galveston, Harrisburg and San Antonio Railway built through the area in 1877 the station was called Cibolo Valley. A post office called Cibolo opened in 1883. By 1890 the community had a church, a cotton gin, a general store, and 100 residents.

The Cibolo Valley school became a reality in 1904. In 1914 a second frame school building was constructed to accommodate the growing number of students. In 1916 the voters approved a bond for a new high school. The census of 1940 recorded a post office, a bank, nine businesses, and a population of 250.

When the town was incorporated in 1968 the population was 398. The major economic influences on Cibolo have been Randolph Air Force Base and the expansion of San Antonio. The town reported 1,757 residents in 1990. Today there are 9,286 residents according to the latest census. There is much to do in and around the area. You will find shopping, museums, and outdoor events that top the list.
