Boerne was named after German author Karl Ludwig Börne. Though he never even visited America, his passion about the promise of this new land was enough to inspire the town to be named in his honor.
With roughly 21,000 residents, Boerne might be small, but it’s anything but forgettable!
Surrounded by rolling hills and bedecked with native foliage, Boerne remains a wonderful place to live, work, visit, or get married! Find out everything the area has to offer and why you should consider Kendall Point for your upcoming event.
