In December 1847, a company of the Texas Ranger Division commanded by Henry E. McCulloch established a station at the site of present-day Burnet for the protection of frontier settlers from Indian raids. In March 1849, the station was chosen as a federal fort and named Fort Croghan.
A town was founded next to Fort Croghan in 1852, when Burnet County was established. The town was originally named Hamilton after John Hamilton, who owned a league and labor of land nearby. In August 1852 a post office was established in Hamilton and named Burnet Courthouse. In 1857 thirty-five residents of the town petitioned the state legislature to change the name of the town to Burnet since there was another town in Texas named Hamilton. The name was changed in 1858. The City of Burnet was incorporated in 1933.
The first school in the town of Burnet was a private one taught in 1852 in a one-room log cabin. In following years school was conducted in the old Fort Croghan stone building. In 1885 the first Board Elections were held and six men were elected as school trustees. In 1970 the Bertram Independent School District was consolidated with the Burnet Independent School District to form the Burnet Consolidated Independent School District.
