Davenport History

Located on FM 3009 and Schoenthal Road in the Garden Ridge area, the name Davenport pays homage to the area’s history, old building in bracken txwhich was once called the Davenport Settlement.
As the town began to grow, residents applied for a local post office. It was then that the townspeople learned a Davenport post office had already been established in the State of Texas and the town was renamed to Bracken.
In addition, the Davenport School in Bracken was among the first public schools in Comal County, opening in 1883 and educating local children for 73 years. After World War II the Davenport School was consolidated with the schools of Solms and the original Danville School house to form Comal Elementary. 
Davenport will open in August 2020 to service students from Garden Ridge and Morningside Elementary and Danville Middle.
