It is a historically German-Texan area, with a significant German and Spanish history. The county seat is New Braunfels. The city of San Antonio is located in the northwest part of the county, while the town of La Grange is in the northwestern portion.
Comal County is home to several state and local histories. It was created in 1846 from Bexar, Travis, and Gonzales counties and incorporated in 1903. In the past, birth records were recorded in the county in the 1890s. Today, the census reports show a population of 102,413. The number of residents is growing rapidly, with more than a quarter million people living in Comal. Despite the population growth in recent years, the county is still relatively small.
The county seat is New Braunfels. In 2014, the county’s population was 123,694, which is the second highest in the state of Texas. The city of San Marcos has a population of 109,776. In terms of geography, Comal County is mostly plains, but is also covered by a number of hilly areas. As a result, it has a climate that is ideal for hiking, biking, and camping.
The major cities of Comal County are New Braunfels and Schertz. The county seat is located near the intersection of Interstates 35 and 10 and has a total area of 1,488 square miles (575 sq mi). The water area of the county is only 34 square miles (13 km2), making it an extremely attractive option for residents and visitors alike. Currently, the county has a population of 7802 and is home to several recreational facilities.
The county was created in 1846 from three separate counties. As of 1940, it is home to the largest concentration of native German population in Texas. The population of the county is made up of mainly Mexican, Spanish, and German-American communities. The town of Canyon Lake is also home to two important natural attractions in the county. The Natural Bridge Caverns were discovered in 1890 by four students at St. Mary’s University San Antonio. The limestone caves are the largest known commercial caverns in the state.
The county’s center is located at 29deg48° north latitude. The center of the county is New Braunfels, which is 45 miles southwest of Austin. The city of Canyon Lake is the largest city of Comal County and is a census-designated place. Its 80 miles of shoreline makes it one of the largest lakes in Texas. The area includes small unincorporated towns such as Canyon Village. In addition to the city, there are several golf courses and a country club.
Interestingly, Blacks comprised 7.1 percent of the county’s population in 1870. In 1980, Hispanics constituted 24 percent of the county’s population. As a result, blacks were only a small minority of the population, and it’s unlikely that their support for the Confederacy was based on their preference for free labor. In the 1860 census, Blacks were barely one percent of the total, and Hispanic-surnamed citizens made up an even greater percentage of the county’s overall populace.
The county is home to Canyon Lake, the eighth largest in Texas. Its population of 123,694 people in 2014 is the sixth largest in the state. In 2008, the county had a population of 206,413 residents.

There are also many historical sites in the area to explore.
The county is home to the Nuestra Senora de Guadalupe Mission, which is located in Comal Springs. There are eight public school districts in the county. As of 2010, the population of the county was 16,325. The area’s name is derived from the Spanish word for “flat dish.” The river flows through the county’s southern border, and a spring is named after it. The name of the state is a combination of three words, meaning “flat plate.”
