WELCOME to the City of Von Ormy's website. Von Ormy is one of the newest cities in Bexar County and in the State of Texas, and is a growing, vibrant city located in the heart of South Texas. Von Ormy was established in Colonial times as a stop along the Camino Real and was known then as Paso de las Garzas. We are named for Prussian Count Norbert Von Ormay who moved his court to our community in the 1880's. We invite you to learn more about our History, Government & City Planning as Von Ormy continues to focus on improving the present and the future quality of life of its residents.
