Kirk

Kirk was at the junction of the International-Great Northern and San Antonio Southern railroads, at a site just off present Interstate Highway 35 fourteen miles southwest of downtown San Antonio in southwestern Bexar County. In 1930s the community had a station and a number of houses; children attended school in nearby Von Ormy. The community declined after World War II, and by the 1950s it was longer shown on maps.

Adapted from the official Handbook of Texas, a state encyclopedia developed by the Texas State Historical Association (TSHA). It is an authoritative source of trusted historical records.
