About Medina County, Texas
Medina County has a population of approximately 46,000 spread over 1,335 square miles, of which 9.2 consists of water. The county is named after the Medina River and the county seat is Hondo. Hondo was founded in 1881 and incorporated in 1942 after the US Army constructed an airfield to train new pilots – at one time this was the largest air navigation school in the world and Hondo Army Air Field trained over 14,000 navigators for the World War II before closing in 1946.
Hondo is also famous for two bank robberies in the early 1920s by the Newton Gang, and the famous sign erected in 1930 that said: “This is God’s Country, Don’t Drive Through It Like Hell,” later modified in the 1940s to read, “This is God’s Country, Please Don’t Drive Through It Like Hell.” This sign has been seen all over the world including the National Geographic magazine and the Little Texas’ music video “God Blessed Texas.”
