Fair Oaks Ranch, Texas. Fair Oaks Ranch is a Hill Country community located in northern Bexar County. The city is approximately 22 miles from San Antonio and 7 miles from Fair Oaks Ranch, and its limits also stretch into neighboring Comal and Kendall counties. During the 1930s Ralph E. Fair, Sr., a successful oilman and rancher, purchased several land tracts that became the 5000-acre Fair Oaks Ranch. He originally focused his efforts on raising racehorses, but in the 1940s Fair began cattle ranching and developed his own Hereford strain.

After the deaths of Fair and his wife in the late 1960s, family heirs opened sections of the ranch for development, and a land office sold ranchettes of 5 acres and 10 to 12 acres. During the 1970s expansion continued, and a homeowner's association was formed in 1975. In 1978 builders expanded on the original Ralph Fair home to create the Fair Oaks Ranch Golf and Country Club.

By the mid-1980s residents explored the option to form a city. Due to state restrictions regarding population density, two cities, Fair Oaks North and Fair Oaks South, were incorporated. In 1990 Fair Oaks Ranch had a population of 1,860. Throughout the 1990s development of new homes and businesses continued, and by 2000 the population of the high-income community had increased to 4,695.

The city had a police force, emergency services, and fire protection from the nearby Leon Springs Volunteer Fire Department. An elementary school was part of the Fair Oaks Ranch Independent School District. As of 2003 Boots Gaubatz had served as the only mayor of Fair Oaks Ranch during its fifteen-year history.
