    MAPS: HISTORY: Handbook of Texas Online: ".. was settled in 1850 and called Pieper Settlement, after Anton Pieper. For many years the closest post office was at Smithson Valley, and mail was delivered once a week to the house of Carl Koch in Bulverde. A local post office that operated from 1879 to 1919 was named for Luciano Bulverdo, an early area landowner. Since 1959 Bulverde has been served by a community post office that opened in Charles L. Wood's store. The town had a population of nearly 100 until the 1960s, when it fell to twenty-five. The Herrera, Ufnau, Honey Creek, Mustang Hill, and Green Hill schools were consolidated with the Bulverde school district, which had an enrollment of fifty-two in 1947. In more recent decades two residential developments have been built near the historic crossroads community."

    From the Chamber web site: ".. History of Bulverde: This “hub” location is not without history: the founding of Fredericksburg in 1846 necessitated a road to connect it with New Braunfels, founded in 1843. This road took a route that bypassed the more difficult paths to the North and went through what is now downtown Bulverde, popularly called "The Village" which is located on Bulverde Road just West of 281 (1863/Bulverde exit off 281). Bulverde was founded in 1850 as a stopping point for travelers and called the Pieper Settlement. The present day name was taken from the local post office which was founded in 1880 and named for Luciano Bulverdo, an early land owner. The population was one hundred in 1940. In 1947 the Herrera, Ufnau, Honey Creek, Mustang Hill and Green Hill School Districts were consolidated into the Bulverde School District and had an enrollment of fifty two. The original store in Bulverde was built on the site occupied by Sweet's Store around 1873 and in 1956 was purchased by the Wood Family who continue to own the location today. The original building, was destroyed by fire in 1969. This site has been continuous operation for over 125 years. The area was originally home to many American Indian tribes, including the Lipan, Tonkawa, Karankawa and Waco tribes. Arrow heads, including one known as the Bulverde Point can still be found in the hills surrounding the area. Popular today for the local spirit born from those early pioneer beginnings and quaint, historical sites, the area has continued to attract more and more people and businesses looking to escape the compact, hustle-bustle of the city. Most residents prefer to shop and find entertainment in their community surrounded by the quiet gentleness that only the Bulverde/Spring Branch area can offer."
    Named for Luciano Bulverdo, an early settler. Founded in 1850's.
