Early maps of Kerr County

While these are not really quality images, because you can't magnify them and see all the details, they do give you a rough idea of what the area looked like in the early days of the county.  The oldest, from around 1850, doesn't show Kerr County or Kerrville; the nearest marked landmark is Bandera Pass.  These came from a document Jan Wilkinson found online.  Many thanks to Jan for sharing these with all of us.  Click HERE to visit Jan's history blog.

since Kendall County is shown, and it wasn't created until 1862.
