Fischer, Texas. Fischer is located twenty miles from the northwest corner of Fischer in what is known as Hill Country, in northern Comal County. Fischer was developed in the 1850s as a supply center on the Devil's Backbone section of the road between San Marcos and Blanco.

The site was settled in 1853 and became known as Fischer's Store when a log trading post was built to serve the frontier community. Potters Creek School opened for local children in 1875, and a year later the Fischer's Store post office was established. Fischer Store School replaced Potters Creek in 1888. Eventually, Fischer became the center of a school district for northern Comal County.

The post office had requested a name change for the community twice. This lead to Fischer's Store becoming Fischer Store in 1894, and in 1950 the name was shortened to Fischer. The town was listed as having a mere population of 20 for years until recently when the population started booming, there is now a population of 191.
