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.

While the rest of the family had their lunch in the park, my youngest granddaughter and I visited here. It was fascinating, with items loaned or donated from the descendants of the original German families who started this town. Well worth a visit, which is...More

It was the meeting place, worship center and educational building at one time. Now contains artifacts, memorabilia, historical documents and...More

Give yourself 10-15 minutes go wander in this museum as you shop around Main Street. There is a great open area outside to sit and relax on a nice day. Admission is free, but they do suggest $1 donation.

the same standards as the original. Nice (but small) museum with a stock of local history books offered for sale.

This is a replica of the original community building with historical information about the early days of the town. It works well with the Pioneer Museum information.
