We stopped and visited the homestead where they had all the furniture crafted by the original settlers. Our guide, Marijane Stafford was great. She did a great job explaining all the artifacts from the original settlement.

If you want to really get a feel for what the Texas pioneers lived like, do NOT miss the New Braunfels Conservation Society's Conservation Plaza. We had a very personal informative tour by the curator and left wishing we were having a wedding there just to walk under the lighted rose arbor.

The village is 14 buildings that have been restored and furnished to represent a German village of 1849 - 1881. Each building, school, house, barn, outhouse, church etc.... More
