Kreutsberg (Kreuzberg, Kreutzberg) is on Farm Road 474 six miles northeast of Boerne in south central Kendall County. In 1847 the Vincent Phillip family placed a cross on a nearby hill as a landmark; the name Kreutsberg, German for "Cross Mountain," was applied to the community that developed later. In 1905 the Kreutsberg school had one teacher and twenty-eight students. A school and several houses marked the community on county highway maps in the 1940s. The Kreutsberg school district was divided between the Boerne and Kendalia districts in 1952. In the 1980s the old school was used as a community center.
