Enjoy a sip of local history F

redericksburg has long been known as a “wet” city, not for the rain that falls but because it permitted the sale of beer, wine and other beverages long before other communities after Prohibition ended. Our wineries are booming. But if you want to talk bier, hit up Jeff Holt, the town’s resident expert on suds and their loFDOKLVWRU\ <RXFDQ¿QGKLPDW*ästehaus Schmidt or getting some “fresh beer” at Fredericksburg Brewing Company or Pedernales Brewing Company.) Jeff has given many talks on the subject and mentions that ales were the order of the day in Fredericksburg before refrigeration. He said before Prohibition hit Texas in 1918, Fredericksburg had three breweries. Captain Charles Nimitz, the grandfather of our World War II hero, Admiral Chester Nimitz, ran the Nimitz Hotel. It had a copper-tank brewery in the basement,

but supply shortages during the Civil War forced him to close it in 1861. Frederick Probst paired up with Dr. Adolph Assig to brew at a property at 310 West Austin Street which had a brewery with three cellars where they made a popular weissbier. Assig later moved to Blanco, but Probst continued to serve local patrons. John Knopp opened a saloon at the corner of Main and Milam streets and began to import cheaper beer from San Antonio (5 cents a glass, versus 10 for the Probst EUHZ )UXJDO*HUPDQVPDGHWKHLUFKRLFH and Probst closed his brewery in 1895. Henry Warner and John Mauer owned a brewery in Marlin, but located here in 1875. They operated a lager beer-brewery in the 400 block of East Creek Street for nine years. It’s believed Warner died in 1877 and Mauer likely headed west to El Paso. Today, Fredericksburg boasts two breweries and a third is under construction. (See page 120.) Main Street’s Fredericks-

Leaving the farm behind Members of the Hill Country Antique Tractor and Engine Club will celebrate spring in the Hill Country with a nod to the past during the 11th Annual Bluebonnet Tractor Ride Saturday, April 9. Antique tractors and machinery will chug along a predetermined route at speeds determined by the slowest vehicle, which will probably be about 5 mph. These antique tractors, automobiles, trucks, etc. will be followed by a â&#x20AC;&#x153;People Mover.â&#x20AC;? This vehicle is for friends or relatives who want to participate in the ride but donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have tractors. The cost of riding on a â&#x20AC;&#x153;People Moverâ&#x20AC;? and a meal will be $15 per person. Early registration with payment for a seat on the People Mover is required to guarantee a space. Pre-registration for the tractor ride is $30 and will include lunch and a cap. Registration on the day of the event will cost $35. Youth between the ages of 16 and 19 will get a reduced cost of $15. A driversâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; meeting will be held at 8:30 a.m. As in previous years, a â&#x20AC;&#x153;Sag Wagonâ&#x20AC;? will follow the tractors to provide assistance to those @GoFred1

that experience mechanical or fuel problems. Those driving the tractors must be at least 16 years old and have either a driverâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s license or learnerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s permit. 7KHULGHZLOOFRPSO\ZLWK7H[DVWUDIÂżFODZV including speed and safety regulations. No passing will be allowed. Management team members will be riding tractors within the caravan to help insure safety.

Awards will be given away for the oldest tractor, oldest driver and the farthest traveled with a tractor.

Each summer, there are a few festivals that celebrate residentsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; continued fondness for sharpshooting. There are six shooting clubs in Gillespie County whose members participate regularly in several competitions each spring and summer season. The Gillespie County Schuetzenbund (Shooting Club) is comprised of the following clubs: *Bear Creek, *Tivydale, Hubertus, *Grapetown, Barons Creek and Scharfschuetzen.

A wide array of foods and drinks will also be available throughout the weekend. History Since its beginning before the turn of the century, the Gillespie County Fair has been held at numerous locations, including the banks of Baronâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Creek just east of the city on the site of Old Fort Martin Scott. Later it was moved to where the Turner Hall is now located on West Travis Street, and after that it was held on a knoll near what is today headquarters for the city electrical department off U.S. Highway 87 South. Years afterward, the fair was conducted at what people today call the old fair grounds, two blocks from Main Street on the Kerrville Highway. The present facility, located off Texas Highway 16 South, was dedicated in 1976 during the U.S. Bicentennial. 7KHFXUUHQWVLWHLQFOXGHVDÂżYHHLJKWKVPLOHUDFHWUDFN grandstand, biergarten, exhibition hall, livestock barn, restroom facilities, an outdoor dance pavilion and ample parking.

64 Back in the â&#x20AC;&#x153;good olâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; daysâ&#x20AC;? in the 19th and early 20th Centuries, students met in one-room country schools and learned the three Râ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s: reading, writing and â&#x20AC;&#x2122;rithmetic. Then, along came schools like Fredericksburg Independent School District, Harper ISD and Doss Consolidated Common School District, and the country schools took their place in history. Those schools are now things of the past, but the sites and even memories can still be revisited, courtesy of a visit on the Gillespie County Country Schools Trail. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Schools Trailâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; The â&#x20AC;&#x153;schools trailâ&#x20AC;? gives visitors and residents alike a chance to venture into the earlier days of Texas, when German settlers came to the Texas Hill Country and established country schools to educate their children. Among the old school houses on the driving trail are Cave Creek, Cherry Mountain, Cherry Spring, Crabapple, Grapetown, Junction, Lower South Grape Creek, Luckenbach, Meusebach Creek, Nebgen, Pecan Creek, Rheingold, Williams Creek (Albert) (where President Lyndon Johnson attended), White Oak, Willow City and Wrede. In the 1950s and 1960s, the schools were consolidated into the Fredericksburg Independent School District. On Jan. 23, 2006, the Gillespie County Commissioners

Peaches keep â&#x20AC;&#x2122;em coming back for more Gillespie County peaches are some of sweetest in the state thanks in large part to the minerals and micronutrients of the Hill Country soil. The 1,700 foot altitude temSHUDWXUHYDULDWLRQKHOSVLQWHQVLI\WKHĂ&#x20AC;DYRURIWKHIUXLW Gillespie County produces roughly one-third of all the peaches produced in Texas on about 600 acres that are dedicated to peach growing. Blooms usually show up around mid-March, and the earliest peaches in this part of the state begin to ripen in May. By June 1, the peach harvest is in full swing, and roadside stands become a hive of activity. Peach lovers come from around the state to Gillespie County to buy their peaches market fresh. Some local peaches are sold outside the county at farmersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; markets in the cities, including Austin and San Antonio. In addition, peaches are sold at the weekly Fredericksburg Farmerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Market. Varieties The many varieties grown in Gillespie County fall into two general types: â&#x20AC;&#x153;freestoneâ&#x20AC;? and â&#x20AC;&#x153;clingstone.â&#x20AC;?

Buyersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Guide When buying peaches, look for ones that are fairly firm or just becoming a bit soft. The skin color between the red areas should be yellow or at least creamy. Avoid very firm or hard peaches with a greenish color â&#x20AC;&#x201D; they are probably immature and wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t ripen properly once plucked from the tree. Soft fruits are ideal for ice cream or jam, but should be used quickly. The best way to buy Gillespie County peaches is direct from grower stands and markets located throughout the area. Roadside stands offer â&#x20AC;&#x153;just pickedâ&#x20AC;? peaches. To let visitors experience more of their favorite treat, some peach growers allow their customers to enter the orchard and pick their own fruit.

Heritage center new city landmark Anyone traveling west into Fredericksburg from U.S. 290 are bound to see the newest member of the city’s “skyline” — a 50-foot tall campanile. The tower “serves as the centerpiece for the future Texas Rangers Heritage Center,” said Joe B. Davis, president of the Former Texas Ranger Foundation. The recognizable landmark will draw attention to the museum’s main entrance, as well as to the Texas Rangers “Ring of Honor” outdoor memorial area on the ground level, said Davis, a retired Texas Ranger. Phase I of the project, which is completed, includes the bell tower and Ring of Honor and an amphitheater, a living history area, a pavilion, parking lot, the main entrance off the highway and a crosswalk/pathway that leads to the adjacent Fort Martin Scott Historic Site. Those elements combined represent about two-thirds of the overall project, Davis said.

Phase I (including the campanile) of the Texas Rangers Heritage Center is completed. Next will be the 25,000 square foot Phase II project, which includes a living history program. — Standard-Radio Post photo

They are also currently raising money for the capital building fund for Phase II. The building will be about 25,000 square feet. It contains an education center, video presentations, speakers and a living history program. The focus is on teaching Texas Rangers history to the public. It also includes programs to work closer with youth regarding developing good character traits and becoming better citizens. Regular-sized brick pavers to be placed at the base of the bell tower may be purchased for a $100 contribution. Each brick paver affords donors three lines of text (with 14 characters per line, including spaces.) A larger, 16-inch by 16-inch paver is also available for $1,000. It may feature a custom design, such as brands, logos, or a longer list of family names, Davis said. Anyone interested in purchasing HERITAGE CENTER ▶ 80

‘THE ROCK’ enchants visitors

A unique pink granite dome that sits in the heart of the Hill Country, called Enchanted Rock, is a must visit destination for any outdoor enthusiast. Enchanted Rock State Natural Area is a wonder to behold any time of day or night. Seen from miles away due to its size and shape, Enchanted Rock stretches up 1,825 feet in elevation and reaches out to grab the interest of thousands of hikers, campers and other outdoor lovers who take the time to visit the 640-acre park near the Gillespie/Llano county line each year. Located about 16 miles north of Fredericksburg, the park also is one of the best area places to see the stars at night shine big and bright. It was one of two parks in Texas to be designated an International Dark Sky Park. The designation means that Enchanted Rock’s lighting sources now comply with the International Dark Sky Alliance requirements, which not only saves energy for the park, but assures that visitors from the city experience a night sky uninterrupted by bright lights. It also helps the area promote low-impact ecotourism in one of the Hill Country’s major tourist destinations.

Bats call old tunnel park home Visitors of Fredericksburg who have never seen a bat donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to travel too far to get their chance. The smallest Wildlife Management Area in Texas â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Old Tunnel State Park, a mere 16.1 acres, houses more mammals than any other WMA in the Lone Star State. For six months out of the year, three million-plus bats make their home inside the 920-foot landmark railroad tunnel, which was built in 1913 and used by the Fredericksburg and Northern Railway until its abandonment in 1941. Brazilian Free-tailed Bats, as well as an estimated 3,000 cave myotis bats, funnel out of a now-defunct railroad tunnel between May and October. The Old Tunnel WMA, located at 10619 Old San Antonio Road (around 11 miles south of Fredericksburg), is open sunrise to sunset, 365 days a year. During the summer and early fall months, Texas Parks and Wildlife Department hosts daily sessions to educate visitors about the bats. Then, at dusk, viewing sessions are held where spectators can watch as a â&#x20AC;&#x153;black tornadoâ&#x20AC;? forms before their eyes as thousands of bats leave their roosts inside the abandoned railroad tunnel, swirling out en masse on their QLJKWO\IRUDJLQJĂ&#x20AC;LJKWV To better see the bats on their nightly runs, the park offers an upper viewing deck and a lower observation level which is closer to the bat tunnel and walking trail. The largest bat populations and corresponding longer emergence times (up to 45 minutes) fall later in the summer. $VEDWVDUHVHQVLWLYHWROLJKWĂ&#x20AC;DVKSKRWRJraphy is permitted only from the upper-level viewing area. In addition, the upper viewing deck contains glass-plated biological displays aimed at educating the public on the life cycle of the bats and their importance to the ecological system. Park guides conduct an educational program in the lower observation area closer to the tunnel about 30 minutes to an hour prior to the estimated bat emergence times on

Thursday through Sunday evenings. Cost for that program, as well as admission to the lower trail and lower viewing seats, is $5 per person. 2QO\VHDWVDUHDYDLODEOHIRUWKHSUHVHQWDWLRQDQGVHDWLQJLVRQDÂżUVW FRPHÂżUVWVHUYHGEDVLV Since the program start depends upon the emergence times (which vary with sunset times), the Old Tunnel WMA maintains an informational phone line to distribute updated information. Information on estimated â&#x20AC;&#x153;showâ&#x20AC;? times is available at 1-866-978-2287. Further information is also available on the Internet on the Old Tunnel WMAâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s TPWD web page at: http://tpwd.texas.gov/state-parks/old-tunnel. Picnic tables are available at the park, along with a half-mile bird-watching trail.

and in more recent times had been used as a restaurant. Visitors to Pioneer Museum will be immersed in the stories of those who built this community. 7HQKLVWRULFVWUXFWXUHVÂżOOHGZLWKDXWKHQWLFDUWLIDFWVDQG images, encourage visitors to imagine the struggles of the founding generations â&#x20AC;&#x201D; thousands of miles from their birth place, with scant supplies and equipment, to survive and create a new life. The Kammlah House and Store began in 1849 as a oneroom structure, but grew through the years with the addition of three kitchens, a cellar, a stone patio, bedrooms and living areas. When the society purchased the Kammlah property in 1955, four generations of Kammlahs had lived in the house. Between 1870 and 1924, the Kammlahs operated a general store in the front rooms. The house is the oldest building in Fredericksburg open to the public. Each historic structure at the museum complex tells part of the story of this communityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s past. The Kammlah Smokehouse and Barn, located behind the KRXVHDUHÂżOOHGZLWKERWWOHOLQHGĂ&#x20AC;RZHUEHGVDZLQGPLOO chicken pen, farm implements and outhouse reminiscent of a past era.

The White Oak School recalls the days of the one-roomed country school, common before Texas consolidated its schools into larger districts after World War II. Three additional homes offer a comparison between different types of structures found in 19th century Fredericksburg. The Walton Smith Log Cabin, built around 1880, is a typical log-stone-mortar house. The Fassel-Roeder House, begun in the 1870s, served as a butcher shop before a kitchen, living room and front porch were added. Furnished with household items typical of the late 19th century, the Fassel-Roeder House illustrates domestic life during that period. The Weber Sunday House is typical of small wooden structures built by German families who lived too far from town for one-day trips. These little houses served as places to eat and rest when families came to town for church, shopping or funerals. Also located on the grounds is the Fredericksburg Volunteer Fire Department Museum, built by the Fredericksburg +HULWDJH)HGHUDWLRQ)RXUSLHFHVRIHDUO\WK&HQWXU\ÂżUHÂżJKWLQJHTXLSPHQWRIIHUDJOLPSVHRIWKHKLVWRU\RIWKH)UHGericksburg Volunteer Fire Department.

Tapping into a trend While the growth in wineries is booming, some here in Germantown still prefer beer or something stronger. Fredericksburg has two breweries, with a third under construction, and a nearby distillery, ripe for exploration by visitors who seek adult beverages.

BREWERIES Fredericksburg Brewing Company www.yourbrewery.com 830-997-1646 Fredericksburg Brewing Company was ahead of the curve in the boom in microbreweries. Opened in 1994, the brewery offers five excellent beers on tap, plus seasonal brews. Today, Fredericksburg Brewing Company is the oldest brewpub in Texas, also called the “Best in Texas” by several publications. The brewery claimed a gold medal at the 2008 Great American Beer Festival Competition, plus other medals in various competitions. The brewery, located at 245 E. Main St., sits in two restored 1890s-era buildings. In addition to its main room, the brewery has a large, air-conditioned biergarten. The second floor of the buildings provides “Bed & Brew” facilities, 12 rooms with baths, each decorated in a different theme. The brewery’s restaurant also features a variety of freshly prepared foods, from burgers, to pizza, to Scotch eggs, and more. Fredericksburg is one of the few towns in the nation that allows sidewalk consumption, so visitors may take a cold brew on a Main Street stroll. Pedernales Brewing Company pedernalesbrewing.com 830-998-7486 Open since April 2012, Pedernales Brewing Company is growing rapidly as the popularity of its four in-house beers grows around the Hill Country and Central Texas regions. President Lee Hereford brought in brewmaster Peter McFarlane to produce its LOBO Texas Lager, LOBO Negro, Classic IPA and Classic Hefe-Weizen, plus seasonal offerings. Located on U.S. Highway 87 South, its suds can be found at many

Fredericksburg Brewing Company owner Dick Estenson and Brewmaster Rick Green were long established by the time the microbrew boom came to pass. – StandardRadio Post photo local outlets, including Judy’s Liquors, Western Beverages, H-E-B, JEK’s convenience stores, and more. Its distribution now covers 15 counties and its representatives are adding retail sales locations daily. Additionally, the brewery’s tasting room is open from 3-5 p.m. Fridays, and 1-5 p.m. Saturdays. On the first Saturday of every month, Pedernales Brewing Company stays open from 5-6 p.m. for Beer and Hymns. Beer and Hymns is an informal and nondenominational gettogether that is free to the public. Singers gather in the brewing room and sing hymns with a music leader. BOURBON DISTILLERY Garrison Brothers Distillery Garrisonbros.com 830-392-0246 Garrison Brothers offers fine bourbon made the old-fashioned way, a time-consuming process, but one that results in a smooth sip of hand-made, artisan bourbon. Garrison Brothers offers $10 “Sit & Sip” tours on Wednesdays through Sundays at 10 a.m., noon, 2 p.m. and 4 p.m. The tour is a guided walk of the ranch and distillery with detailed information about the whiskey and the operation’s history. (First-come, firstserve, and large groups must be arranged in advance. No children or smoking are allowed.) Garrison Brothers’ Cowboy Bourbon was named American Micro Whiskey of the Year by “Jim Murray’s Whiskey Bible.” The distillery is located just east of the Gillespie County line on Hye-Albert Road, just south of the tiny community of Hye. The bourbon is available at various retailers around the state, at Hye Spirits in Hye, and a variety of items are for sale on its website.

Spooled up and ready to go Gillespie County Airport hosts a variety of aircraft GILLESPIE COUNTY AIRPORT (830) 990-5794 191 Airport Road Fredericksburg, TX 78624 FAA Identifier: T82

Youth have the opportunity to sit in aircraft and visit with pilots at fly-ins and other events held at the Gillespie County Airport. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Standard-Radio Post files photo

For years, the Gillespie County Airport has been a key component to the growth and success of the area in attracting residents and new businesses. Corporate jets, single engine aircraft and pilots of a variety of other types of aircraft are all accommodated at the facility, located at 191 Airport Road, just three miles south of downtown Fredericksburg on Texas Highway 16. (The facility sits between the Gillespie County Fair Grounds and Lady Bird Johnson Municipal Park.) Classed as a general aviation airport, it features a 5,000foot runway and full-length parallel taxiway and has runway lights and a beacon that operate from sunset to sunrise, giving the airport a 24-hours-a-day, seven-days-a-week, operational capability. During daylight hours of limited visibility, the lights can be turned on by the approaching pilot. Instrument approaches are available to both ends of the runway, and precision approach path indicators provide pi-

lots with visual assistance during night landing operations. A fully-automated weather system (AWOS) informs pilots about local conditions. The airportâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s terminal building provides a comfortable environment for pilots, crew and passengers waiting on aircraft. An additional convenience is available with the credit cardoperated refueling system that provides aviation gasoline (100LL) and jet fuel 24 hours a day. Airport manager Roger Hansen can provide information on two 12,000-square-foot insulated hangars which have 52 tie-down positions for public use (with more in the works). Long-term T-hangar spaces are available through three different entities. There are also 1.5 acres dedicated for aircraft parking. The adjacent Hangar Hotel and Conference Center boasts XSVFDOHJXHVWURRPVDQRIÂżFHUÂśVFOXEPHHWLQJIDFLOLWLHV for large groups and a classic 1940s-style diner, unique facilities at a non-metropolitan airport.

â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m walking,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Yes, indeed

Whatever the season, any time is a good time for a walk through the Texas Hill Country. The local walking club â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Volkssportverein Friedrichsburg (VVF) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; has established six self-paced, year-round routes for walkers to enjoy. All six walks have been developed between 5K (3.1 miles) and 10K (6.2 miles) distances although it is possible to shorten the distances unless walking for credit. In addition to the four normally-designated routes inside the city limits, the club has also plotted out routes at the Lyndon B. Johnson State Park and Historic Site in Stonewall and at the Enchanted Rock State Natural Area. These walks are sanctioned by the American Volkssport Association as Year-Round Walks. Check-in for the in-town walks is at Windcrest Inn and Suites, 908 South Adams Street. The two rural walks both have starting points inside park visitor centers. At each location, participants should ask the personnel for the Walk Box from which they can obtain maps of the selfguided walks as well as other items needed if walking for credit. The start of the walk itself may involve a drive to a different location. It was noted that the walks can only be done during daylight hours.

Fredericksburg Walks The four city walks include: Â&#x2021;$9$3LOJULPDJHâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; This walk is a self-guided tour of the Historical District and honors the heritage of Volkssporting in America, which began here in June of 1976. The 10K walk begins at Windcrest Inn and Suites and the 5K walk begins in the parking lot at HEB. Â&#x2021;&HPHWHU\:DONâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; Participants taking this route will start at Marktplatz and will walk through two historical cemeteries in Fredericksburg. One location â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Der Stadt Friedhof â&#x20AC;&#x201D; was established in 1846 when the town was founded, and the other â&#x20AC;&#x201D; the Catholic Cemetery â&#x20AC;&#x201D; was established in 1850. The route continues on tree-lined streets on the north side of town. Â&#x2021;7RZQ&RXQWU\:DON â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Outdoor enthusiasts who take this route will walk through the outskirts of Fredericksburg

on the way to catching a scenic look of the town from atop a nearby hill. Â&#x2021;&URVV0RXQWDLQ:DON â&#x20AC;&#x201D; The beginning location for this trek is Cross Mountain. At the top participants receive a 360-degree view of Fredericksburg and the surrounding countryside. The 10K walk also goes to a pioneer cemetery. LBJ State Park The route at LBJ State Park and Historic Site will take walkers to the Sauer-Beckmann Living History Farm where life in the rural areas of the early-1900s is shown daily by living history demonstrations. The route also takes walkers along Ranch Road 1 and the banks of the Pedernales River. A new 10K trail crosses the Pedernales River to the LBJ National Historical Park and the Texas White House. Most of the trail runes along the river.

148 CROSS MOUNTAIN Cont. from 146

Rising to an elevation of 1,951 feet above sea level, Cross Mountain is located on North Milam Street alongside Ranch Road 965. A sign at the entrance makes the entryway easier to spot. After recent volunteer work done by The Friends of the Fredericksburg Nature Center, visitors can now walk up the hill on a stairway path to reach the top of the mountain for a panoramic view of the area. There are also two trails that circle the mountain, one at the base and the other half way up the mountain, where visitors can look at the different plant life and wildlife in the area. No vehicles are allowed up the hill but parking is available at the foot of the mountain. History The history of Cross Mountain reaches back to when early settlers arrived in 1846, they found the remnants of a wooden cross that had been erected there most probably by the Spanish missionaries who had by then established missions in San Antonio, San Saba and other areas of Texas. For the Indians, too, it was a landmark as it lay on the Pinta Trail, one of the oldest Indian trails in the state. From the Pinta Trail crossing on the Pedernales River, the trail divided, with this branch following the Upper Crabapple Road in the direction of Bear Mountain and then on to Enchanted Rock and beyond.

Cross Mountain gained its name when an early-day German settler, John Christian Durst, found the old cross of heavy timbers at its summit that was erected by the Spanish missionaries. He named it â&#x20AC;&#x153;Kreuzbergâ&#x20AC;? (Cross Mountain), a name that has never changed. In the summer of 1848, Father George Menzel, a Bohemian priest, erected a more substantial cross as a symbol of redemption and civilization. During the Diamond Jubilee of St. Maryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Catholic Church in 1921, a more permanent cross was placed on top of the hill. It was constructed of concrete, reinforced steel and sheet metal. It was vandalized over the years, but was rebuilt by St. Maryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s in 1940. :KHQUXUDOHOHFWULÂżFDWLRQFDPHWRWKHDUHDLQWKH cross was illuminated. It burns bright each evening from 6 p.m.-midnight. The park was purchased by Dr. J. Hardin Perry in the 1900s to keep it from being developed. It then ended up in the ownership of the Gillespie County Historical Society. In 1999, the City of Fredericksburg obtained ownership of the historic landmark. The park is now maintained by the City of Fredericksburg Parks and Recreation Department. $QRIÂżFLDO7H[DV+LVWRULFDO&RPPLVVLRQPDUNHUZDVGHGLcated in observance of Founders Day on May 7, 1977, and the Nature Trail was dedicated during the 1978 Founders Day activities at the site.

Marktplatz was originally known as Market Square until the area was redeveloped to its present state in time for the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 150th anniversary in 1996. This area was originally designated by the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s founder, John O. Meusebach, as a place for people to gather and enjoy themselves.

Memorials Also included on Marktplatz are brick walkways, numerous arbors and a History Walk that honors the pioneers of the community, including President Lyndon B. Johnson, Admiral Chester W.

A statue of Fredericksburg-born composer Frank Valentin van der Stucken is located in the Pioneer Garden on the square. Also located in the Pioneer Garden near the water wheel is a near-life-size bronze statue of Meusebachâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s yet-unbroken peace treaty with the Comanche Indians. Dedicated in 1997, the memorial was placed by the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 150th Anniversary committee. A bust of the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s founder, John O.

Additional restroom facilities are located in an adjacent building. One of the most active areas of the square is a shaded playground that is a favorite spot for parents to bring their children.

Settlers chronicle history in paint Early pioneers Herman Lungkwitz and Richard Petri settled near Fredericksburg more than 150 years ago. And like hundreds of other settlers, they were determined to survive and thrive. What made them different was the artistic record they left of the world in which they lived. Their sketches and paintings became prized as rare interpretations of an era whose works of art are few and far between today. Now museum treasures, their artwork provides a vivid reminder of what life was like “back then”, particularly here in Gillespie County. Petri and Lungkwitz had become friends at the Royal Academy of Art in Dresden, Germany, and Lungkwitz later married Petri’s sister, Elisabet. These three were joined in their move to America by Friederike Lungkwitz, Herman’s aged mother; his sister, Therese, and Petri’s sister, Marie. The group left Germany late in the summer of 1850, landed in Hoboken, NJ, and moved to Wheeling in what was then Virginia. Richard Petri’s health was poor, so they decided to come to Texas, sailing down the Ohio and Mississippi Rivers to New Orleans where Adolph Lungkwitz, Herman’s younger brother, joined them. They traveled to Indianola and then to New Braunfels, before moving to the Fredericksburg area in

These two artists, however, also devoted much of their time to painting the Texas landscape as they saw it, leaving for today many prized pictures of scenes, buildings, frontier life, even Indians, which are found in private collections and museums. Two books have been published about them. ART HISTORY ▶ 157

â&#x20AC;&#x153;coffee millâ&#x20AC;? structure, was erected in 1935 as a replica of the original Vereins Kirche which was constructed by the townâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s settlers in 1847 a few yards away in the center of what is now Main Street. The original Vereins Kirche (community church) was used not only as a church (kirche), but also as a fort, a storehouse and a community meeting hall. As different denominations built their own houses of worship, it fell into disuse and disrepair. For the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 50th anniversary jubilee celebration in 1896, the structureâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s outer walls were removed and it was used as a pavilion for the jubilee celebration. The next year it was completely demolished. For many years, local citizens had the vision and dream of building a replica. By the end of 1933, one of the bright spots to emerge out of the Great Depression was the culmination of this dream. The Gillespie County Historical Society was formed to raise funds for building this memorial to the pioneers and local funds were matched with federal funds. In 1935, when the building had been completed and the grounds landscaped, a gala celebration was held to dedicate the structure. It was used as a museum to display memorabilia and collectibles of pioneer days. A part of the building was later set

aside for use as a library. When the GCHS acquired the Kammlah property (located at Pioneer Museum Complex), the museum exhibits were moved there and the entire space was devoted to Pioneer Memorial Library. When the countyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s second courthouse was recycled for use as a library, through the generosity of Eugene and Margaret McDermott of Dallas, all the books were moved across the street to the new library facility. For a few years, part of the Vereins Kirche was used as an RIÂżFHIRUWKH&KDPEHURI&RPPHUFHDOWKRXJKWKH*&+6 maintained some exhibits in it. Soon, a number of GCHS members became involved in putting together the present Archives Collection. When the chamber moved out of the Vereins Kirche, the entire space was given over to the archives (which have now been relocated to the GCHS Center, 312 West San Antonio Street). A depiction of the peace treaty with the Comanches, painted by Lucy Meusebach Marschall in the 1920s, hangs in the Vereins Kirche. Also located inside the Vereins Kirche is a store where a variety of items are sold, including a large collection of books on German Texas history, postcards, pictures and souvenirs.

Newspaper covers century of news One of Fredericksburg’s oldest business members, the Fredericksburg Standard-Radio Post has been covering this part of the Texas Hill Country for 128 years. It was founded in late-1888 by Green Harrison as the Gillespie County News. A string of ownership changes ensued as Harrison sold the paper to Webster McGinnis in 1889. It sold two more times before O.W. Faubion, the man responsible for changing the name to the Fredericksburg Standard, bought it in 1907. The Fredericksburg Publishing Company bought the Standard in 1915 from Harry Kusenberger and maintains ownership today. The company named Robert Penniger editor. When Penniger bought Freie Presse fuer Texas, he terminated his editorship and was succeeded by William Dietel. The title of editor transferred to Oscar R. Schumacher in 1922 and then to Robert S. Klett in 1925. Upon Klett’s death in 1940, assuming the leadership role was Arthur H. Kowert, who had joined the Standard as advertising manager upon graduation from the University of Texas at Austin in 1934. He was succeeded as editor by Terrill D. Collier,

who joined the Standard staff as news editor in September 1973. Collier was president and editor in 1988 until KHZDVQDPHGSXEOLVKHUE\WKH¿UP¶VERDUGRI directors in 2003 after the death of Kowert. In his place, his wife, Cathy Collier was named editor. The company sold to Moser Community Media, LLC in 2012. Ken Esten Cooke was named publisher and editor the same year. In addition to the Standard, the company also once published the Fredericksburg Wochenblatt. Founded in 1873, it had a succession of owners before it was purchased in June of 1893 by Robert Penniger. In 1915, when the Fredericksburg Publishing Company was formed, the Wochenblatt became part of that company. The last issue of the Wochenblatt was published on Dec. 27, 1945. The length of the Standard’s name grew considerably in November 1984, when the Fredericksburg Publishing Co., Inc. purchased the other local newspaper, Fredericksburg Radio Post, which was established by the William Dietel family in 1922. It has continued to print under the Fredericksburg Standard-Radio Post ÀDJVLQFH

Today’s paper still gives news and information, as did the town’s German-language paper, which printed until 1945.

All are ‘Willkommen’ in People travel up and down Fredericksburg’s streets day in and day out without ever giving any thought as to how they were named. When the town’s planners picked names for the streets on the main thoroughfare, they encoded into the names of consecutive streets a ‘welcome’ and a ‘goodbye’. Most of the city byways have large signs showing the name of the street and an illustration of the Vereins Kirche, a symbol of Fredericksburg that stands in the center of the city on Marktplatz. The Vereins Kirche through the years has become a commonlyrecognized landmark of Fredericksburg and placing a sketch of the venerable structure on the street signs was a part of the city’s “dressing up” for the 125th anniversary of the founding of Fredericksburg in 1971. Among the more German names of streets is Ufer, which runs parallel to Main Street and three blocks south. Ufer, in English, means stream bank, and undoubtedly was so named because it runs along the southern bank of Baron’s Creek, the main stream WKDWÀRZVWKURXJKWKHFLW\ Originally, the street that runs along the north side of the creek was probably called Bach Strasse, but was translated to Creek 6WUHHWZKHQDOORIWKHFLW\¶VVWUHHWVZHUH¿UVWRI¿FLDOO\QDPHGDQG marked after the city was incorporated in 1933.

It was several years later that the Fredericksburg Lions Club took on the project of giving all the streets names and purchased and installed street signs. It was then that it was decided to name the streets running north and south across Main to spell out words. Starting at Courthouse Square, all of the streets crossing Main WRWKHHDVWZHUHQDPHGVRWKDWWKHLU¿UVWOHWWHUVZRXOGVSHOORXW “All Welcome”. These streets are Adams, Llano, Lincoln, Washington, Elk, Lee, Columbus, Olive, Mesquite and Eagle. Traveling west from the Courthouse Square, the streets spell out “Come Back”. These street names are Crockett, Orange, Milam, Edison, Bowie, Acorn, Cherry and Kay. Many of the streets found throughout the city are named in honor of trees -- Mesquite, Cherry, Cottonwood, Hackberry, Liveoak, Mulberry, Apple, Orange, Plum, Pear, Pecan, Poplar, Spruce, Sycamore and Walnut. Naturally, there is a street named Peach, in honor of the counW\¶VPRVWSRSXODUDQGSUROL¿FIUXLW There is an Elk Street and a Deerwood Street, but no deer street. There are several named for famous native son Admiral Chester W. Nimitz, including Nimitz Street, Nimitz Drive, Nimitz Circle

the City of Fredericksburg and Nimitz Parkway. But, there are no Johnson streets or Meusebach streets. There is a Bunny Drive, in the shadow of Cross Mountain, which is undoubtedly named for the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s famed Easter Fires characters. There are some unusual street names, such as Kraupahen, a contraction of the names of Mayor Edward Krauskopf and Commissioners WilOLH3DSHDQG0D[7+HQNHZKRZHUHLQRIÂżFHZKHQWKHVWUHHWVZHUH named. $QGZKHQWKHQHZ)UHGHULFNVEXUJ3RVW2IÂżFHZDVEXLOWWKHFLW\QDPHG DVWUHHWWKHUHÂł7KHRGRUH6SHFKW'ULYH´LQKRQRURIWKHFLW\ÂśVÂżUVWSRVWmaster. Actually, there were some streets named before the project began in the early-1930â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s, among them San Antonio, Travis and Austin Streets, which retained their old names. However, what is today known as Main Street was originally San Saba Street. Despite the fact that all of the streets in the city are now named, chances are that if one meets a native of long standing in the community and asks directions, heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll give directions using landmarks in the city, by prominent businesses or houses, or by sketching out a route on a slip of paper. Fredericksburg still likes to think of itself as a small town, where most people know each other and where they live. )RUWKRVHZKRDUHQHZWRWKHFRPPXQLW\DQGZDQWWRÂżQGWKHLUZD\ around town, a map in included toward the back of this Visitors Guide.

THE SPIRIT OF FREDERICKSBURG Bravery. Honesty. Cooperation. Those are just some of the positive traits shown by early settlers to Fredericksburg. Together, they carved out an existence rich in culture and quality of life, while building the foundation for a town that continues to flourish more than a century and a half later. Clean streets, pride in property, and respect for neighbors are a part of what makes Fredericksburg one of America’s favorite small towns. And working together is still an attribute that pervades the city’s spirit.
