Bandera Central Appraisal District
About Bandera County, Texas
The Bandera Country was founded in 1856 and is named after Bandera Pass, which itself is the Spanish word for “flag.” It’s known as the “Cowboy Capital of the World” by the Texas Legislature. Bandera consists of 798 square miles of territory, although seven of these consist of water. Even back in the early 1980s, over three quarters of the land consisted of farms and ranches. The population was estimated to be 21,000 in 2014 and the county seat is Bandera, a city of approximately 900 people. Many of Bandera’s population may trace their ancestors back to the Polish founders of the city and the city is a favorite destination for bikers from San Antonio, who participate in the Bandera Breakfast Run.
The largest city in Bandera County is Lakehills, to the south east of the county, which has a population of over 5,000. Lakehills was originally known as Upper Medina Lake until a post office was established in the early 1960s. The population has doubled in the last twenty years.
