This city with a population of approximately 10,000 was occupied for many years by different tribes of Native Americans. During the 1820s, the Comanche took over the land and forced the Lipan tribe from the area. In the 1830s, after the Texas Revolution, Helotes began to be developed as a farming and ranching community, although attacks by the Comanche were ongoing until the late 1870s.
