Spring Branch, Texas, is a city located in the west to northwest part of Comal County and is considered to be a part of the San Antonio–New Braunfels metropolitan area. Even though it wasn’t until November 19, 2015, that Spring Branch officially became a city, the land it’s comprised of was initially settled by German immigrants sometime during the 19th century. One of those German settlers was a man named Adam Becker who came to Texas on behalf of the Mainzer Adelsverein at Biebrich am Rhein or also known as Adelsverein. At the time, this was Germany’s strategy to establish a “new Germany” inside the Texas borders. Conal County, too, has an interesting past. The name first came from the Spanish who named some freshwater springs in the area “Comal” which means “flat dish.” Being the largest naturally occurring spring in all of Texas, this meant people were attracted to this region for thousands of years, with the Tonkawa Native Americans being the first indigenous people encountered by the earliest European explorers back in the 17th century.
