Cibolo was near Dry Cibolo Creek at a site immediately north of present Farm Road 85 and seven miles west of Dilley in southwest Frio County. Around 1920 a schoolhouse was constructed in Cibolo; this school was one of the first in Frio County to offer an eleven-grade curriculum. By 1929 the community had two schools and several dwellings. Only one school operated in Cibolo by 1936. In 1974 three dwellings remained in the community, and by 1989 Cibolo appears to have been abandoned.
