Garza’s Crossing, also known at times as Garzas and Paso de las Garzas, is at the intersection of Old Somerset Road and the Medina River in southwest Bexar County. The original ranchers in the area were Ignacio Pérez, Ángel Navarro, Juan Manuel Ruiz, Francisco Ricardo Hernandez, Bernardino Ruiz de Castañeda, and Jose Maria Bacerra. The town was named for Miguel de la Garza, a rancher and ferryman active in the area in the 1850s.
