Waring, Texas. Waring is on the banks of the Guadalupe River, seven miles from Comfort and twelve miles from north Boerne in Kendall County. Waring was founded in 1887 and originally known as Waringford, when R. P. M. Waring, a native of Waringford, Ireland, provided a right-of-way for the San Antonio and Aransas Pass Railway for its Kerrville line.

In 1888 the post office from Windsor, a neighboring community, was moved across the Guadalupe River to Waringford. On February 10, 1901, the town's name was shortened to Waring. The population of Waring remained between 100 and 150 from 1890 until 1914, when it reached a high of 300. During these years the town had two general stores, a corn and grist mill, a gin, a stone quarry, a lumberyard, a hotel and boarding house, and several stores.

The area has many options for outdoor recreation as well as nearby cities that have plenty of cultural, educational, and entertaining attractions and amenities.
