The first game of polo played in America was played just outside Boerne by Englishmen at a retired British officer’s (Captain Turquand) famous Balcones ranch. The place where the Polo Club gathered & overnighted for celebrations, meetings etc. was at 706 South Main Street in Boerne, Texas.

Having seen this website, I carved a stamp. There is no place nearby that location so the stamp is hidden in Boerne Cemetery.

From I10 go east on Johns Rd about 1 mile, turn left on North School St for 0.5 mile, then turn left into Boerne Cemetery at entrance with historical marker. Go to the last crossroads and park.

Look for the markers for Mother & Father Becker. If you look between the markers there is a bush. It is on the father's side of the marker for Mother & Father Phillip. The bush is hiding an urn for flowers. The box is in the bush next to the urn.
