n 1838, Sam Houston signed the deed transferring ownership of a section of land, 640 acres, to J. M. McCulloch from Petersburg, Virginia. At the time the land was in Bexar County. Boerne would be platted 12 years later and Kendall County would eventually be carved out.
This area of Old San Antonio Road in South Boerne was originally known as The British Colony, and the Howard Family, who would own the ranch from 1880 to 1943 would be avid participants in all that they, and their English families, brought with them – Cricket, Polo and shooting competitions were some of their favorite sports. In fact, in an old photo of the Boerne Polo Club, at least 3 Howards are represented.
I think they would be proud of the fact that the homestead – the ranch house, barn and stables, would be a retreat for folks anxious to share in all the wonderful things our Boerne, and Hill Country, offers.
Two suites are featured in these photos. Both have a queen bed and full bath and are overlooking the main oak-canopied grounds.
