STRUMBERG, TEXAS. Strumberg is at the intersection of Interstate 35 and Cassin Road in southwest Bexar County. In 1881 the International and Great Northern Railroad constructed the first rail line connecting San Antonio and Laredo. Strumberg was seven miles southwest of Kirk and seven miles northeast of Lytle. It was known for its rich clay deposits and commercial potteries but declined after World War II.
