The City of Ingram is located between Kerrville and Hunt nestled in between the hills and along the banks of the Guadalupe River. The city was founded in 1879 by J.C.W. Ingram who purchased 6 acres from Mr. Abner Morris and opened up a store and post office. Years later in 1932, the small town suffered a flood and most of the businesses relocated a half mile northeast to higher ground. Among many of the business owners was J.J. Maxwell who owned a drugstore. He built his drugstore out of flagstone and soon others followed his footsteps giving the town the nickname Rock Town. Fast Forward to 1981 Ingram elected Donald Oehler as the Mayor, Charlie Lee as the City Marshall, and five councilmen Don Williams, Bruce Kimbrow, Vernon Burns, Monroe Schlabach, and Ed Lange. Today the Mayor Claud Jordan, and Council Members, Rocky Hawkins, Ray Howard, Robert Kimbrough, David Britton and Twanda Brown were elected to serve a two year term.
