Legend has it that the Leon Valley area was once the site of a stagecoach stop between Bandera and San Antonio, with the first settlers arriving in the early 1800s. According to the tale, Leon Valley was considered a dangerous area for wagons and stagecoaches due to the once continuously running Leon and Huebner Creeks. Early pioneers struggled against the harsh life of the Hill Country, sharing the area with roaming mountain lions and native Tonkawa Indians.

This pioneering spirit was upheld in 1952, when a group of local residents, responding to possible annexation to the City of San Antonio, filed a petition to incorporate the Leon Valley area.
