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.
