Schertz, Texas. The first settlers came to Schertz around 1843. Members of the Schertz family still reside in the City.

The first settlers planted wheat, oats, and corn, which did not need special equipment to harvest and process. In later years, cotton was planted, and proved to be very productive and a cash crop. In fact, so much so, that there were two cotton gins in Schertz at one time. In 1870 the first gin was built by the Schertz family. It was powered by mules and then in later years by steam. This gin was located where the post office is at the present time.

The City's population is estimated at 23,000. There are several churches of all denominations located in and around the area. The parks provide a great source of recreation and the city is very proud of them. They also take great pride in the area swimming pool and the festivals they conduct every summer for the enjoyment of there residents.
