Our History

Kyle Auction Oak

In 1880, 19th Century railroad magnate Jay Gould decided that his International-Great Northern Railroad needed a station between Austin and San Marcos. He made a deal with property owners David Moore and Fergus Kyle their former land was auctioned off under the Kyle Auction Oak. Kyle was incorporated in 1928 as a general-law city with a mayor and five council members. In 1937 Mary Kyle Arson, daughter of Fergus Kyle, was elected mayor by a write-in vote. In the early 1940s Kyle was noted as the only Texas town with an all-woman government. The town has been home to Battle of San Jacinto hero John Wheeler Bunton, Ambassador (and Texas A&M Kyle Field namesake) Edwin J. Kyle, Rhodes Scholar Terrell Sledge, American League baseball pitcher C.C. "Tex" Hughson, historian Milton Nance, and authors Katherine Anne Porter and Lena Blithe Hamilton Kirkland.
