Kerr County

A Destination for Strategic Economic Growth

Allow us to introduce to you Kerrville, a city of 25,000, which is a stone’s throw away from the burgeoning growth of the Austin-San Antonio economic corridor, also referred to as the ‘The Next Great American Metropolis’ by Forbes Magazine. The metropolis the magazine is referring to is the 73-mile stretch between San Antonio and Austin, a region of 4.5 million, where Kerrville and the Hill Country is the bookend to this corridor. Kerrville is positioned as a destination for strategic economic growth and a must-visit destination for companies, investors and entrepreneurs who are seeking a location for expansion and seeing their business thrive.
