The museum is small, but it gives a good idea of the German settlers in Fredericksburg about 1846. Displays of WWI and how Germans Anglicized their names to avoid suspician; no one in the town was persecuted.

This building is a reconstruction from 1935 of a previous 1847 property which stood nearby. We were there on a Sunday and couldn’t gain entry. It stands in a small Park off Main Street and is well preserved.

Free entry to a small but informative museum which gives a good understanding of why and how the area was developed by German immigrants in the 1840’s. A lovely building

Here is where the German settlers worshiped in the 1800's when settling Fredericksburg area. The history is well worth the visit. It is in the center of the Market Place Square in the center of town.

This small museum holds interesting artifacts and the lady working the day we went was very interesting to talk with. Also, include a small gift shop. The garden area behind the museum is worth making this stop a part of your Fredericksburg visit.

The history of the German settlers in Texas was well organized and very informative. I felt like this should have been included in Texas History classes. The information made our visit to Fredericksburg more meaningful.
