Center Point Texas is located along Highway 27 between Kerrville and Comfort just south of Interstate 10. This small unincorporated community, nestled in Kerr County has a population of about 4500 residents and is primarily comprised of ranches, farms, large acreage and estates.
Center Point was originally established as a county seat for Kerr County in the mid-1850s. It was a major trade route between Comfort and Kerrville as well as Bandera and Fredericksburg. The first post office was established in 1859 moving to the south side of Guadalupe River in 1872. It was largely settled by Western Tennessee immigrants and the community continue to grow as relatives and neighbors from Tennessee converged into the area. At the turn of the 20th century, Center Point was a thriving trade center until new highways and interstates took over such as Interstate 10 located about 10 minutes north. In 1913 however, it did vote itself as an incorporated city with the mayor and city clerk but later that year dissolved itself by a popular vote of the people. In the mid-1990s, it was once again voted to be incorporated but in less than two years, was once again voted to be dissolved. It currently is one of the largest unincorporated communities in Texas.
