The "City of Choice"
What it's like to live here....
The City has a rich history in the development of south Texas. Located in the extreme western corner of Guadalupe County in south central Texas, the City is situated along Farm Market Road 78 and north to south along FM 1103, and paralleled by two major interstate highways, IH 10 to the south and IH 35 to the north. The City is within easy access of Seguin(the County seat) and San Antonio, and lies approximately 13 miles east of the San Antonio metropolitan area.
There were many settlers in the area long before 1876. The Comanche’s and other tribes roamed this area before the first German settlers arrived. In fact, the name Cibolo is an Indian word meaning “buffalo.” The City was named after the creek that flows through the area. Generally, the history of the City begins with 1876 because that is the year the Southern Pacific Railroad cut through present day Cibolo; it connected with other larger cities such as Houston and San Antonio.
The City is part of an area known as the Metrocom, the Northeast corner of Bexar County and the Southwest corner of Guadalupe County. The sister cities of the Metrocom include Universal City, Schertz, Selma, Live Oak, Gardenridge, Converse and Kirby. In this area you will also find Randolph Air Force Base a major pilot training facility for the United States Air Force.
The City is home to a diverse group of people. The nearby military base and dual Interstate location, continually draw new business and industries to locate to the area. We think you’ll find this is a charming area that provides a “country-style” way of life and is known locally as the “City of Choice.”
