History of Bandera Bandera was settled in the early 1850's drawn by the cypress trees along the Medina River. A sawmill was built in 1853 which produced shingles from the cypress trees for builders in San Antonio as well as the U.S. Military. Bandera was also home for the Apache Indians as well as the Comanche Indians. Many bloody battles between Apache and Comanche Indians and the Spanish Conquistadors took place in Bandera Pass (12 miles north of Bandera on Hwy 173). Legend has it that, for years afterwards, a red "bandera" (Spanish for banner or flag) was flown at the site to define the boundary between Spanish and Indian hunting grounds. Bandera Texas after the Civil War was the staging ground for cattle drives which ran north as far as Dodge City Kansas, into Nebraska and for a time, clear up to Deadwood South Dakota.
