Heritage Village includes many interesting historic buildings which were saved from destruction and moved to the site. The Breustedt-Dillen home houses the museum and contains a nice sampling of furniture shown in room settings. The docents were very knowledgeable and made our visit interesting.

Most interesting in you like to see well made handmade furniture from 50 to 100 years ago. The grounds are also photogenic

German heritage and preservation at its best. Tour the facility, see how New Braunfels was in the beginning, and try to attend Folk Fest in April. You won't be disappointed.]

This little museum complex is full of beautifully hand-crafted furniture from the 19th and early 20th century. Mostly made in Texas by German craftsmen.
