So, you want to know a little more about Kyle, Texas? That’s why you clicked here! We can’t say we blame you — it’s a very cool town.
Kyle was founded in 1880. The town was named after Fergus Kyle, the son of Claiborne Kyle who moved here from Tennessee. Under the famed Auction Oak Tree, plats of land were auctioned off to several hundred folks who became the town’s first citizens.
My, how we’ve grown! In 2016, Kyle was the second largest city in Hays County with a population of 36,800. Population estimates put Kyle at 55,000 by 2030.
With easy access to locales north and south, Kyle is a major city on the I-35 corridor in Central Texas. It’s home to Seton Medical Center Hays, Hays CISD administrative offices, Austin Community College Hays, several medical facilities, and H-E-B Plus, major retailers, numerous restaurants and many homegrown businesses.
Here are some cool Kyle tidbits:
- Kyle got its first stoplight in 2007.
- Kyle is 30.4 square miles, with 185.5 miles of roadway and more than 600 acres of beautiful park land.
- Kyle is a Home Rule city. Residents elect the mayor and city council, but a city manager, Scott Sellers, runs the city’s day-to-day operations. He does so with a $79 million operating budget.
- Our Parks and Recreation department offers community events including Market Days, Founders Parade, Santa’s Arrival and Tree Lighting, Polar Bear Splash, Easter Eggstravaganza, and our annual July 4th Fireworks.
- Signature special events include Kyle Field Day, Kyle Hogwash and Hops & Jalapenos.
- Kyle is now home to the Central Texas Lobos, a semi-professional soccer team.
- Kyle is also a good place for business. The city houses many businesses and with an educated population, there’s plenty of room for growth.
