Medina County is situated in south-central Texas. It is directly west of San Antonio. The square piece of land has a total area of 1,335 square miles. The county has a population of 46,000. The county is named after the Medina River, a prominent feature of the land. The Medina Dam is one of the largest in the United States and impressively dates back to 1913. It helped create Medina Lake, a popular area attraction and place of refuge on the weekends for locals. The county seat is Hondo.
The county was created in 1848. Medina County has grown to become incorporated in the San Antonio metropolitan statistical area. Hondo is less than an hour’s drive to downtown San Antonio.

Interstate 35, which shortly enters the county in the southeast corner, also travels from Devine and Natalia to San Antonio.
Hondo is the largest city in Medina County. The population of Hondo was close to 9,000 people based on data from the most recent census. The small city was initially settled by a combination of migrants from Germany, Belgium, Alsace-Lorraine, and Mexico.

Public education in the city is managed through the Hondo Independent School District. Hondo High School is classified as a 4A school in Texas.
