An older couple greeted me as I went into the church and the lady told me the history of the building and early settling of Fredricksburg. She knew her history well and I enjoyed hearing it from someone who was obviously of German descent (she pronounced all the German words correctly and I asked her if she was of German... More

This was the church/meeting ground during the early settler days in Fredericksburg. The structure itself is interesting, and that is what we thought it was - just a structure. Actually, it's a small history museum with lots of interesting period artifacts and memorabilia. Make sure you find the poster advertising for Germans to come settle and how much land they... More

This to me is my most favorite time to be at the Vereins Kirche because the number of visitors local and from out of town. Can't explain it until you have a chance to drink and toast to all good things GERMAN!

We had always planned to go into this interesting looking building, but we never made the time. We are so glad we did this trip. It has neat exhibits of early Fredericksburg and the pioneers here.

This was the first church and community club of Fredericksburg and it houses much of the history on how the community and its churches came to be.

Museum was closed because of a climate control fair on the grounds. Didn't want to pay to get into an event we were not interested in. Should have been some way for us to get into the museum.

If you're really into history, there's some interesting stuff here. Overall, it's just okay - small, mostly display, and takes just a short time to absorb it all.

I hope the 'Educational' in the title doesn't scare anyone away because the education here is painless. The woman who worked both the register and gave us the tour is a retired teacher. I could have guessed this without her telling us because of her passion when teaching us about the displays and especially the painting of the treaty between... More
