Ingram, Texas. Ingram is seven miles west of Kerrville in central Kerr County. The surrounding land was granted by the state to John Twohig in 1847. J. C. W. Ingram bought six acres in 1879, opened a store and post office, and gave the town its name. The early settlers, mostly farmers, milled and ginned their crops at Sherman's Mill between Ingram and Hunt and made shingles from the plentiful cypress trees. Later, sheep, goats, and cattle were brought in, and ranching became part of the economy. In later years deer hunting became a business in the area, and still later exotics from several foreign countries were imported for hunting.

Beginning in the 1920s the resort business became important to Ingram. In 1958 the Hill Country Arts Foundation, a nonprofit educational organization that combines art studios and theater, got there beginning in Ingram.

Today the area works hard to retain a positive stance in the area. Ingram is one of the two only incorporated towns in the county. The school district sees to the needs of many area children in the town or just nearby. The quality of living is shown by the community spirit, the resort style of life, the excellent schools, and the constantly rising population.
