Kerrville in Kerr County, Texas — The American South (West South Central)
Hal and Charlie Peterson
Sid Peterson (1868-1939) was born in Lavaca County and came to Kerr County in 1882. As a youth, he worked cattle drives; and in his later years, Peterson became one of the most substantial ranchmen and landholders in the Hill Country. His sons Hal Peterson (1899 - 1960) and Charlie Peterson (1901 - 1953) were well known Kerrville businessmen. Peterson Interests consisted of 22 major enterprises including bus lines, real estate developments and ranches. They established the Hal and Charlie Peterson Foundation in 1944, which continues to make charitable gifts to this region. The brothers established the Sid Peterson Memorial Hospital in honor of their father. The hospital was on this site from 1949 until relocation in 2008.
