Center Point is an unincorporated community in Kerr County, Texas (USA). It had a population of 4260 in 2010.
In the mid-1850s, as Kerr County was establishing a new county seat, a small community to the south was being established as a major trade area between Comfort and Kerrsville (later changed to Kerrville) andBandera and Fredericksburg.On November 25, 1859, the first post office was established and called Zanzenberg after the ancestral home of the town founder Dr. Charles Ganahl. Originally opened in the home of Dr. Ganahl, the post office stayed there until 1872 when it was moved to the south side of the Guadalupe River, where a sizable community was building. When the post office was reopened it was called Center Point due to its location on the trade routes, mentioned above.Founded largely by settlers from western Tennessee, the community continued to grow as relatives and neighbors from Tennessee converged on the banks of the Guadalupe to call Zanzenburg/Center Point their new home. On September 1, 1857, the first native of Center Point came into this world when Daniel C. Nowlin, son of Dr. James Crispin Nowlin and Ann Gathings Nowlin, was born. Daniel served as Kerr County Surveyor, sheriff of Lincoln County, New Mexico, and then to Wyoming where he was a prominent sheep rancher until his death on February 5, 1925.As such Center Point remains as one of the largest unincorporated communities in the state of Texas.
