Willkommen to the ’Burg B luebonnets, peaches, wine and thou. Nature, nectar and romance. That sums up a lot of the appeal of Fredericksburg. Fredericksburg draws more than 1.5 million visitors each year, but those visitors may be interested to learn that agriculture remains the cornerstone of our local economy. Agriculture, of course, includes the grapes one might enjoy while visiting a vineyard or winery. But the hordes of visitors began with the simple roadside peach stands that can still be found today, with thousands seeking those sweet and juicy treasures that come from our peach farmers. Hunters also have come to the Hill Country for decades to harvest deer in what is a multi-generational tradition for many Texas families. B&Bs, now numbering more than 1,100, began in the late 1970s. Shopping, the beautiful outdoors, music and festivals reflecting local culture drove even more people to Fredericksburg as the years progressed. Our local Chamber of Commerce is marking its 100th anniversary this year. Next year, the town will begin a yearlong celebration focusing on the traditions of this town to mark 175 years since its founding (right behind our German sister city of New Braunfels, down the road.) In that time, businesses have flourished and the town has retained a quality business environment while local governments have remained content to grow slowly but surely and not take on too much debt. Now people are clamoring to

move and invest here. We want this magazine, which began publishing in 1978, to reflect most all of what makes Fredericksburg special. We’re pleased that our efforts have been recognized by the Texas Press Association on multiple occasions. Pick up our company’s sister magazine, Rock & Vine, to reach out and explore more of what the Hill Country region has to offer. Our staff lives here, gives here and loves here, always looking for ways to give back to our community and enrich the terrific family atmosphere. Fredericksburg has changed a ton since hunters and peach seekers came to town in the 1930s. But Fredericksburg remains true to its roots and continues to add more things for visitors who seek the fruits of the land or a romantic getaway with a loved one. So welcome to one and all. Have a great time during your visit.

Jazz festival set for return While Fredericksburg has always been known for its music scene, traditionally people think of polka, German choirs, and lately the singer-songwriter circuit. Jason Younts, Fredericksburg High School band director, is changing that by hosting the Third Annual Fredericksburg Jazz Festival. The heart of the festival is a day of workshops for students from 15 area high schools. All day on Saturday, April 18, band students will work with five nationally-recognized professional jazz musicians. The event culminates with a Saturday evening public concert at the Fredericksburg High School Auditorium by the Fredericksburg Jazz Band and guests. On Friday evening, April 17, the professional jazz musicians will present a special VIP Preview Performance at the Nimitz Hotel Ballroom. Performers include: • Randy Brecker, trumpet (New York based Grammy Award Winner). • Utah Hamrick, bass (Grammy Award Winner and Professor of Jazz Studies at Texas State University). • Hank Hehmsoth, piano (Professor of Jazz Studies at Texas State University and Fulbright Scholar). • Matthew Maldonado, saxophone (UT Austin Doctoral Student). • Daniel Dufour, drums (Professional Drum Set Artist). Adding to the jazz vibe, the school is also hosting a concert

All-star guest artists performing at last year’s Fredericksburg Jazz Festival included, from left, Hank Hehmsoth, clinician Michael Davis of New York, Utah Hamrick (bass), Elias Haslanger and Wayne Salzmann II.

Rockets set for takeoff

This will be the second year students from Texas high schools will use the Stonewall launch site to send their rockets up to a mile high and past the speed of sound. It is part of the SystemsGo program that originated in Fredericksburg High School. — Submitted photo April in the Texas Hill Country brings warmer weather, fields of wildflowers and three days of rockets leaping one mile high into the sky at the speed of sound. It is the annual rite known as Rockets•2020, when students from high school across the state gather to launch more than 50 rockets they designed and built as part of the innovative STEM program SystemsGo. The program, which was developed at Fredericksburg High School by teacher Brett Williams in 1996, uses rocketry to motivate students with project-based learning to acquire 21st-century workplace skills. These students independently design, build, and launch rockets that carry a one-pound payload one mile high, or travel beyond the speed of sound. The curriculum is now offered to students in Texas, New Mexico, Oregon and Utah, and soon will expand to Colorado and Oklahoma. Every summer Goddard Level programs work with the U.S. Army White Sands Missile Range with the goal of reaching 100,000 feet while carrying a scientific payload. The program has earned national attention and support. SystemsGo students have gone on to careers with NASA, the Department of Defense, SpaceX and other private sector aerospace, engineering firms and universities. Students now launch from four launch sites in Texas and New Mexico. The Central Texas launches take place April 30 through May 2 on the Segner Ranch, 2187 Double Horn Road, at Stonewall. The public is invited to attend the launches. There is no admission fee, but everyone entering the launch

Food and restroom facilities will be available, and direction signs will be posted. Launches will also be livestreamed. Details and maps can be found at www.systemsgo.org. Note: Launch times will vary depending on weather and student preparation, rockets are scheduled to go up during daylight hours. The area is considered an experimental testing range. Mobility will be limited, access will be controlled, and visitors need to be aware that this is the first flight of all rockets.

Schuetzenfest aims at tradition Gillespie County’s German tradition lives on with the 125th Gillespie County Schuetzenfest, scheduled for Saturday and Sunday, Aug. 1-2, at the Texas Hills Sporting Range. A prime manifestation of this long-standing tradition becomes readily evident each spring and summer in the hills around Fredericksburg with the scheduling of several events by five groups that make up the Gillespie County Schuetzenbund (Shooting Club). Names for these five include Bear Creek, Tivydale, Hubertus, Grapetown and Barons Creek, while the three ranges used for their shooting events are located at Grapetown, Tivydale and Bear Creek. First on each year’s schedule of individual events is the Benefit Shoot which during 2020 has been set for Sunday, April 26, at the Bear Creek Shooting Range. Bear Creek will host. Three months later, the Vorfest will follow on Sunday, July 19, at the Texas Hills Sporting Range at Tivydale. Baron’s Creek Shooting Club will sponsor the event. And finally, just two weeks after that, the Schuetzenbund’s biggest event of the year — the 125th Gillespie County Schuetzenfest — will take place Saturday and Sunday, Aug. 1-2, and hosted by Baron’s Creek Shooting Club at Texas Hills Sporting Range. The Schuetzenfest is the second-oldest community event in the county (bested only by the Gillespie County Fair) and attracts marksmen from all over with their long-barreled rimfire and centerfire rifles. Gillespie County’s five shooting clubs take turns hosting the annual Schuetzenfest at one of three shooting ranges around Fredericksburg. All ages of male and female shooters who like to demonstrate their abilities in the sport show up to participate in the annual event in hopes of winning one of the two kings’ crowns awarded to the top overall shooters in .22 rimfire and centerfire competitions. This year’s Gillespie County Schuetzenbund president is Will Weidenfeller, of Tivydale Shooting Club. The other officers are Justin Marschall, representing Baron’s Creek Shooting Club, vice president; Carol Schmidt, secretary; and Brenda Miiller, treasurer. This year’s event, like others in the past, will start off with opening ceremonies on Saturday morning. A parade and presentation of flags by participating clubs — done to German music — will be among the ceremony’s highlights. After a lunch break, actual competition gets underway following a Bund (German for “club”) business meeting and social hour and continues until late that afternoon before resuming Sunday for an all-day run. At the conclusion of the festival’s shooting and the tallying of scores late Sunday afternoon, former Schuetzenkoenige (shooting kings) will lead a parade of shooters and their club flags into the range where the new kings are crowned. As “Er Lebe Hoch” (May He Live High) is sung, the new kings are hoisted on the shoulders of their teammates and proclaimed Schuetzenkoenige for 2020 before being crowned as part of a tradition that began in 1956 when the two rifle bores — centerfire and rimfire — were separated into their own divisions.

History Since its beginning before the turn of the century, the Gillespie County Fair has been held at numerous locations, including the banks of Baron’s Creek just east of the city on the site of Old Fort Martin Scott. Later it was moved to where the Turner Hall was located on West Travis Street. (The Turner Hall was destroyed by a fire in June of 2016, and a new facility is under construction.) From there, the fair 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. The current site includes a five-eighths mile racetrack, grandstand, biergarten, exhibition hall, livestock barn, food court, restroom facilities, an outdoor dance pavilion and ample parking.

THE ARTS Main Stage Productions All Main Stage productions are on weekends, with Friday and Saturday performances at 7:30 p.m. and Sunday performances at 2 p.m. FTC’s winter musical, “Young Frankenstein,” wrapped up on March 1. The 23rd season will continue with the following events:

edy about Doña Rosita, who is considering closing her restaurant to make way for a shopping mall. She reminisces about her experiences and the people she has known as she decides the fate of her Jalapeño Kitchen. (Rated PG; adults, $29; 17 and under, $12).

“Harvey” April 17-May 3, 2020 One of the longest-running comedies in Broadway history, Harvey has endeared generations of audiences with the relationship of the amiable Elwood P. Dowd and his best friend, a 6’4” tall white rabbit named Harvey, which only he can see. Exasperated, Elwood’s family is finally driven to committing him into Chumley’s Rest Home for the mentally disturbed, but that is easier said than done. The madness is soon catching, and Harvey is not all he appears to be. A true classic of modern theatre, this 1945 Pulitzer Prize-winner about a lovable eccentric still resonates today. (Rated G; adults, $29; 17 and under, $12.)

FTC’s Spring Stage Readings March 20-21, 2020 7:30 p.m. Staged readings from works selected to “enthrall and amuse,” will be featured. The readings will be followed by a discussion with the audience. (Rated PG; adults, $10; 17 and under, $5.)

Country schools educate visitors

Gillespie County believes in preserving the history of public education. One-room schoolhouses dominated the countryside for decades before consolidating with larger districts or closing. The Fredericksburg Independent School District, Harper ISD and Doss Consolidated Common School District came along later, but the country schools remain. The sites and even memories can still be revisited, courtesy of a visit on the Gillespie County Country Schools Trail. ‘Schools Trail’ The “schools trail” 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 B. 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 Court established the Gillespie County Country Schools Trail. This trail linked the 16 former historic country schools with the Vereins Kirche, which is a replica of the first school in the county.

The Gillespie County Schools Trail offers visitors a chance to learn about life and education before schools consolidated in the 1950s and 1960s. — Standard-Radio Post file photo

‘Friends’ The Friends of Gillespie County Country Schools, in conjunction with several organizations, sponsors the trail and various activities throughout the year so that people can learn more about the county’s educational history. The Friends consists of former students of the closed schools. Their mission statement is “we are preserving the past to enrich the future.” Open Houses and other events The schools are available to the public for social activities. The following are open houses and other events: • Feb. 15: Cave Creek • March 21: Pecan Creek • April 4: Nebgen, Rheingold and Willow City. • April 5: Fundraiser and barbecue at American Legion Hall, 10:30 a.m. until sold out. • May 9: Cherry Mountain fundraiser and open house. • June 20: Meusebach and Grapetown. • July 18: Wrede. • Aug. 15: Luckenbach. • Sept. 20: Lower South Grape Creek. • Oct. 17: Crabapple and Cherry Spring. • Nov. 21: Williams Creek.

The Dambach-Besler House, constructed in 1869, serves as the entrance and gift shop of the Pioneer Museum. Operated and maintained by the Gillespie County Historical Society, the museum provides plenty of activities and exhibits to weave the threads of German Texan and Gillespie County history together. — Standard-Radio Post file photo

Pioneer Museum tells local history A chance to explore Fredericksburg’s history through historic structures, authentic objects, and photographs is offered at Pioneer Museum, which is owned and operated by the Gillespie County Historical Society (GCHS). The GCHS and Pioneer Museum work together to create a shared narrative of Fredericksburg history. The GCHS manages historical collections from donors and the Pioneer Museum complex brings the collections to life through exhibits, demonstrations and educational programs. GCHS The GCHS was formed in 1934 to preserve and share the history of Gillespie County. The first Pioneer Museum site was the Vereins Kirche, located in the 100 block of West Main Street. The Vereins Kirche is a 1935 replica of the original structure and is an extension of Pioneer Museum. In 1955, the society bought the historic Kammlah house,

66

store and property, which included a smokehouse and barn. All are at the Pioneer Museum Complex site. With other purchases and donations by the GCHS, the Pioneer Museum site has grown to encompass three acres and 11 buildings. Nine of the buildings are historic structures included on a tour of the Pioneer Museum grounds. The society has over 30,000 artifacts within its rich and diverse collection. Pioneer Museum Located at 325 West Main Street, the museum complex features year-round activities, displays, and hands-on demonstrations for families. The museum is open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Saturday, closed Thanksgiving Day and Christmas Day. Regular museum admission is $7.50 for adults, $3 for youth ages 6 to 17 years and free for children 5 years of age and younger.

Special activities The museum hosts a number of special activities during the year: • Spring Break at Pioneer Museum — March 9-14. • Lenz Fest — April 16. • Easter Egg Hunt — Saturday, April 11, at 10 a.m. • Adventures in Reading — Thursday mornings at 10 a.m., June and July. • Little Pioneers Hands-on Activities, third Saturday, September, October and November. • Kinderfest – Dec. 12. Museum Complex The Dambach-Besier House at 325 West Main Street was reconstructed as the entrance and gift shop of Pioneer Museum and also serves as the Uptown Visitor Welcome Center. The limestone house was constructed by F. Dambach in the 500 block of East Main Street in 1869. The house was later used as a restaurant at the Sunday House Inn. In 2008, the Dambach-Besier House was reconstructed at 325 West Main Street. Visitors begin their tour in the newly-constructed Tank House which has a small interpretive theater with a 12-minute introductory video of the founding of Fredericksburg. Nine historic structures, displaying authentic artifacts and images, encourage visitors to imagine the struggles of the founding generations — thousands of miles from their birthplace, with scant supplies and equipment, to survive and create a new life. The Kammlah House began in 1847 as a three-room home

with a half-story loft and grew into a large house with three additions, including three kitchens, a cellar, enclosed stone patio, bedrooms and a formerly screened back porch. When the GCHS purchased the Kammlah property in 1955, four generations of Kammlahs had lived in the house. Between 1870 and 1923, the Kammlahs operated a general store in the front two rooms. The house is the oldest building in Fredericksburg open to the public. Each building on the Pioneer Museum grounds tells a different aspect of life in early Gillespie County. The Arhelger Bathhouse, originally built as a bathhouse behind the Arhelger Barber Shop on East Main Street. The Bathhouse now shows a 1920s bathhouse with barber chairs, a period bathtub, and a boot shining chair. The White Oak School recalls the days of the one-room country schools that dotted Gillespie County until the second half of the 20th century when most country schools were consolidated into Fredericksburg and Harper school districts. The Walton-Smith Log Cabin, built in the 1880s, is a typical Hill Country log-limestone-mortar house. The Fassel-Roeder House, in its original location, began as a one-room butcher shop. The Fassel family purchased the home in 1874, using the old butcher shop as a bedroom. The Fassel family later added a kitchen, parlor and front porch to the home. The Weber Sunday House is a typical wooden framed structure built by German families who lived too far from town for day trips. These little houses were used as weekend homes, allowing families to eat and rest when they came to town for church, shopping or funerals.

Year-round walks set for county

A chance to experience Fredericksburg and Gillespie County at one’s own pace is offered by the local walking club — Volkssportverein Friedrichsburg (VVF). The VVF has established five self-paced, year-round routes for walkers to enjoy. All five walks have been developed between 5K (3.1 miles) and 10K (6.2 miles) distances. In addition to the three 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. More information is available by contacting Dave Roberts at dlroberts34@hotmail.com or calling 830-992-7584. The VVF website is www.walktx.org/AVA1. Fredericksburg Walks The three city walks include: • AVA Pilgrimage — 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. • Cemetery Walk — Participants taking this route will start at Marktplatz and will walk through two historic cemeteries in Fredericksburg. One location — Der Stadt Friedhof — was established in 1846 when the town was founded, and the other — St. Mary’s Catholic Cemetery — was established in 1850. • Cross Mountain Walk — The beginning location for this trek is Cross Mountain. 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. A 10K route also takes walkers along Ranch Road 1 and the banks of the Pedernales River. A second 10K trail starts at the Schoolhouse and continues through the LBJ Ranch to the Texas White House. The two 10K routes can be combined for a 20K distance. The park has initiated a new walking and biking trails project, which will be incorporated into new Volksmarch routes as appropriate. LBJ State Park and Historic Site is located in Stonewall, 15 miles east of Fredericksburg on U.S. Highway 290. While the park operates year-round, the facilities are open from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., closed only on Thanksgiving, Christmas Day and New Year’s Day. Enchanted Rock The route at Enchanted Rock State Natural Area, located 18 miles north of Fredericksburg on Ranch Road 965, will give hikers a variety of routes, including a more-rigorous option of walking up Enchanted Rock itself.

For those who enjoy walking, the Volkssportverein Friedrichsburg (VVF) has established five self-paced year-round walks around the city and county. — Standard-Radio Post file photo

Wildseed Farms draws more than 300,000 visitors each year. Many take advantage of the walking trails set among the colorful landscape. — Wildseed Farms photo

Wildseed Farms home to colorful blooms at local headquarters One local attraction has helped share the wildflower-laden beauty of the Hill Country with the rest of the nation. Wildseed Farms has served as ground zero for the development and export of this beauty around the state and beyond. The flower-filled business, located on U.S. 290 East at 100 Legacy Drive, is home to the largest family-owned wildflower farm in the United States. More than 200 acres at its headquarters are filled with color year-round as blooms beautify the roadside attraction. And the company has more than 1,000 acres of cultivated fields around the state. With a recent addition of grapes, Wildseed Farms now represents one of the Hill Country’s largest growers of that crop, too, filling a huge need for locally grown grapes to service wineries. Founder John R. Thomas has won local, state and national recognition for his contributions to land conservation and beautification.

The National Museum of the Pacific War is one of Fredericksburg’s largest tourist attractions. It tells the story of World War II, from the war’s beginning to Japan’s formal surrender aboard the USS Missouri. — Photo courtesy of The National Museum of the Pacific War

National Museum of the Pacific War connects people to experiences, stories Interweaving the stories of America, China, Japan and other Asian countries, the chronicle of how World War II was won in the Pacific can be found in Fredericksburg at the National Museum of the Pacific War. This nationally recognized museum honors the more than 100,000 Americans who gave their lives in the war against Japan by “truthfully and respectfully telling the story of their struggles, their sacrifices and their triumphs.” The museum also honors the eight million Americans who served in WWII across the globe. This is particularly relevant in 2020 – which is the 75th anniversary of the end of WWII. Formerly known as the Nimitz Museum, in honor of Fredericksburg’s native son, Fleet Admiral Chester W. Nimitz, it was renamed to respect the wishes of Nimitz who wanted to ensure that all of the men and women who served

82

and supported the war effort were honored. Nimitz served as Commander in Chief, Pacific Fleet and Pacific Ocean Areas and led the naval victory against Japan. Having achieved the rank of Fleet Admiral before his final victories, Nimitz signed the Japanese Instrument of Surrender on behalf of the United States in the historic ceremony aboard the USS Missouri. Nimitz is memorialized with an eight-foot bronze statue that stands on the museum grounds. “The National Museum of the Pacific War connects people to the experiences and stories of those affected by World War II in the Asiatic-Pacific Theater by interpreting its enduring relevance,” said a spokesperson for the museum. This mission of the museum is brought to life in their endeavors to teach the history and lessons of the war in the Pacific and through educa-

tional platforms for their application to current and future national security issues. The museum also strives to preserve the memories of those who served there and those who never returned home as well as facilitate programs that honor and support all veterans, past and present. Main Museum Campus Encompassing six acres, museum visitors can explore 33,000 square feet of indoor exhibits featuring dozens of media presentations, almost 1,000 artifacts in climate-controlled cases, 15 macro-artifacts and hundreds of photographs. One of the elite military museums in the nation, the main museum building at 311 E. Austin St. houses the George H.W. Bush Gallery with the adjacent NIMITZ ▶ 84

The Admiral Nimitz Gallery is located inside the historic Nimitz Hotel building facing Main Street. Just two blocks away are the Oveta Culp Hobby Education Center and the Pacific Combat Zone. Exhibits in the George H.W. Bush Gallery convey the shock and destruction of the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor, including one of the five Japanese, two-man subs that took part in the attack. In the same building the museum archives hold thousands of manuscripts, official documents, photographs and oral histories of veterans. The archives are housed in the Nimitz Education and Research Center which is open to the public by appointment only. In the Memorial Courtyard, the museum honors individuals, ships and units who fought in the Pacific Theater. The Japanese Garden of Peace was a gift to Americans from the people of Japan and is a tribute to Japanese Admiral Heihachiro Togo whom Nimitz admired. It includes a replica of Togo’s study in Japan. Recently re-opened, the expanded and completely renovated Admiral Nimitz Gallery features exhibits of Nimitz’ strategy and tactics in his defeat of the Japanese, a wide array of Nimitz’ own artifacts and new digital interactives, including a chance for visitors to try their hands at refueling a battleship at sea, “island-hopping” toward Japan’s mainland, and even

The Texas Rangers Heritage Center has brought the story of the state’s famous lawmen to life since it opened in September 2013. — StandardRadio Post file photo

Rangers Center offers historical learning Keeping in line with Fredericksburg’s dedication to historic preservation, the Texas Rangers Heritage Center brings the story of the state’s famous lawmen to life. The 12-acre campus includes a 350seat open-air pavilion with a full catering kitchen and a LoneStar Stories Campfire Ring. These amenities support a wide range of event opportunities. Phase I of the Texas Rangers Heritage Center is complete. The project on the town’s eastern edge was about 14 years in the planning. In September 2013, then-Gov. Rick Perry and other dignitaries attended a ground-breaking ceremony on the land between Fort Martin Scott and the Hill Country University Center. The Former Texas Rangers Foundation is the organization heading up the

88

project. Phase 1 has a spacious open-air pavilion, which can seat 350 and features an amphitheater with a fire pit. The site also includes a campanile (bell tower) and a Ring of Honor, and a 30-foot simulation of a Ranger badge which memorializes Rangers who lost their lives in the line of duty. An historic flintlock rifle used by Mexican Texas colonist and elder statesman Ben Milam during the Siege of Béxar will be on display at the Texas Rangers Heritage Center when Phase II opens in August of 2023, just in time for the 200th traditional anniversary of the Texas Rangers. The foundation has begun fundraising for Phase II, which will feature a museum building. There, visitors will learn about well-known Rangers and episodes in Ranger history. Museum planners promise an im-

mersive experience which will include interactive exhibits, a theater, galleries associated with the character traits of the Texas Rangers, and episodes of Rangers who battled bootlegging, counterfeiting and murder, and the man who stopped the University of Texas Tower shooter in 1966. And youth will be taught the five Ranger traits of courage, determination, dedication, respect and integrity. The Former Texas Rangers Association welcomes new memberships. Get more information about the organization at www.TRHC.org. More information is also available by contacting the Former Texas Rangers Foundation office, at 103 Industrial Loop in Fredericksburg at (830) 9901192.

History lives at Fort Martin Scott Get a glimpse of military life on the frontier. Located just east of town at 1606 East Main Street (on U.S. 290 East), Fort Martin Scott is open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Thursday through Monday. It is closed Tuesday and Wednesday. The City of Fredericksburg has installed informational kiosks around the grounds to help visitors better experience the history of the fort. Admission to the historic site is free, although donations are accepted. Parking is available in the grassy area to the left after entering the fort, and also available next door at the Texas Rangers Heritage Center. There is no charge for parking in either lot. Available for inspection along a tour path are a restored enlisted man’s quarters, two officers’ quarters and its original guardhouse, which is the oldest U.S. military building in Texas. Near the fort entrance is a Texas Historical Commission marker which also provides background information. Exhibits from frontier times are offered in both the officers’ quarters and in the Visitor Center. Fort Martin Scott was an active U.S. Army fort for five years (1848-1853). It was the first U.S. military fort in Texas. After that, Texas Rangers, Union and Confederate troops, and travelers, through or to Gillespie County in the 1860s and 1870s, used the site. Besides being a major part of Indian policy in the early days of statehood, Fort Martin Scott played a prominent role in the

Johann Braeutigam was killed there in 1884 while resisting a robbery of his store. The site was closed to the public shortly thereafter. Fort Martin Scott is one of the few museums to focus on the period of the first decade of Texas’ statehood and the earliest days of dealing with Central Texas Comanche and Lipan Apache Indians.

Day use activities Daytime visitors to the park can use picnic tables (available on a first-come first-served basis) and four playgrounds at no charge to accommodate those just wanting to get away from it all for a couple of hours. Three free nature trails that take hikers across Live Oak Creek give nature lovers a chance to get up close and personal with the natural habitat. The pathways were established by the Friends of the Fredericksburg Nature Center.

For vacationers who enjoy fishing, the park offers a 17-acre lake and plenty of spots to wet a line. Motor boats, however, are prohibited, as are trotlines and swimming. Elsewhere in the park, there are baseball and softball fields, a sand volleyball court, an outdoor basketball court, a swimming pool (with kiddie pool to the side) and tennis courts. Rental facilities Visitors who plan large gatherings may want to look into using one of the park’s five large outdoor covered pavilions or one of two indoor sites, including the Tatsch House or the spacious Pioneer Pavilion. Each of the five outdoor pavilions is available on a first-come firstserved basis or by reservation. Information about the facilities CITY PARKS ▶ 92

Local favorite Thomas Michael Riley hollers his appreciation to the Luckenbach crowd. Luckenbach Texas hosts everyone from local acts to national stars. - Standard-Radio Post file photo

Where everybody’s somebody Maybe it IS time, once again, that we got “back to the basics of love.” In Luckenbach Texas, that’s easy to do. Known for its “everybody’s somebody” attitude and live entertainment, Luckenbach Texas has grown to be one of the Hill Country’s most sought-after destinations, with music fans making their pilgrimage to the spot made famous in the 1977 hit by Waylon Jennings and Willie Nelson. Bikers, music lovers, hippies and fun-seekers of all kinds congregate under the live oaks to soak in the atmosphere. With its store, dance hall and picnic tables, Luckenbach - with a sign that jokes “Population 3” - is its own destination. Open daily at 9 a.m., the store

offers visitors an old-fashioned experience and merchandise ranging from the nostalgic to those bearing the iconic oval logo of the town. The “feed lot” adjacent to the dance hall caters to hungry visitors burgers and more. History Some visitors may not realize the history of the place that goes back far beyond the 1970s. Luckenbach began in 1852 when Jacob Luckenbach and his brothers, William and August, moved to the area from Fredericksburg and began farming. William Luckenbach opened a post office under the name of South Grape Creek in 1854 and it operated for 11

years. In 1886, August Engel Jr. reopened a post office for the community, along with a general store in the Engel homestead. It was named Luckenbach by Minna Engel, who had just married Carl Albert Luckenbach. (Nearby Albert is named after him.) In the 1970s, the Engel family sold the town to Honda Crouch, Kathy Morgan and Guich Koock. The years that followed saw Luckenbach gain national attention as the “metropolis of mirth,” thanks largely to Crouch’s far-reaching humor and connections. The place gained huge notoriety with the Waylon and Willie song, along with a live recording by Jerry Jeff Walker, “Viva Terlingua.”

Bats take flight at Old Tunnel May through October marks one of nature’s best shows around. Visitors to Old Tunnel State Park, located 11 miles south of Fredericksburg on the Old San Antonio Road. Visitors who arrive early enough can get a seat close to the action where hundreds of thousands of bats leave an old railroad tunnel to spread out over the region and feast on insects and moths. Only 70 seats are available for the presentation and seating is on a first-come, firstserved basis. Cost for that program, as well as admission to the lower trail and lower viewing seats, is $5 per person. 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. Others may watch the nightly emergence from observation decks located just above the opening of the tunnel. 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. Beginning in late March or early April, up to three million-plus bats make their home inside the 920-foot landmark railroad tunnel at the 16.1-acre Old Tunnel State Park.

Enchanted Rock:

Several years ago, Enchanted Rock State Natural Area saw its drop-in visitation skyrocket. Park staff had difficulty handling the crush of weekend day visitors on nice weather days. And some would enter the park after staff hours and cause mischief. But a reservation system helped Enchanted Rock State Natural Area get control of its large visitation numbers. Other state parks now use the system. As a state natural area, the focus at Enchanted Rock is the preservation of its native flora and fauna. That’s opposed to the mission at a state park, which stresses recreation opportunities for visitors. “It’s more than just a piece of granite,” Cochran said. “There are several different ecosystems out here. There are about 970 different flora in the park. We want to protect this for our kids and grandkids.” Park Superintendent Doug Cochran said as visitation rose to over 350,000 per year. It is now more manage-

114

able at just over 300,000 per year. A new gate at the park entrance also allows for more safety and security for campers and visitors. Enchanted Rock stretches up 1,825 feet in elevation, an awesome sight to visitors as they drive along Ranch Road 965. The 1,643-acre park straddles the Gillespie and Llano county line. There are still plenty of recreational opportunities available via reservation. • Visitors, of course can challenge themselves to a hike to the top of the dome. • The park has its main campground which includes restroom facilities, but also primitive camping sites throughout the park. (Burn bans are in effect during dry times.) • Trails, including the dome hike or the 4 ½ mile Loop Trail wind throughout the park. Guided hikes are also offered.

continued to preserve the history and culture of Fredericksburg and Gillespie County through exhibits and educational programs and outreach. History The original Vereins Kirche served as the town’s first church, school and public meeting place and lookout building for protection against invaders. The replica of the Vereins Kirche has been used as a library, home to the Fredericksburg Chamber of Commerce, a one-day post office, and a museum. The original Vereins Kirche, or Society Church, was used primarily as a church and school for Catholic and Evangelical Protestants. School districts were created in Gillespie County in the 1850s and students were no longer using the Vereins Kirche. As with the school, church congregations began building their own churches in town and slowly leaving the Vereins Kirche empty most days. By the 50th anniversary in 1896, the stone walls had been removed to make the Vereins Kirche a pavilion for the celebration. The building was torn down in 1897 as it had fallen into disrepair. For many years, local citizens had the vision of building a replica of the Vereins Kirche. In 1935, the Gillespie County Historical Society received their charter and began working to rebuild the Vereins Kirche as a pioneer memorial. Fundraising by citizens and help from the New Deal Public Works Administration

supported the building of the Vereins Kirche. A celebration was held in May 1935 and the Vereins Kirche Pioneer Memorial was officially opened. The first use of the new Vereins Kirche was to house the Pioneer Memorial Library and a small historical museum. The first exhibits included memorabilia and collectibles from the early pioneer days. When the Gillespie County Historical Society purchased the Kammlah Homestead in 1955, most of their artifacts were moved and displayed in the Kammlah House while a small exhibit space remained in the Vereins Kirche. In 1967, after the second courthouse had been refurbished by Eugene and Margaret McDermott of Dallas, the Pioneer Memorial Library left the Vereins Kirche and took up residence in the McDermott Building where it remains today. For a few years, part of the Vereins Kirche was home to the Fredericksburg Chamber of Commerce, with GCHS exhibit space occupying some of the building. It was during this time that the GCHS began archiving and organizing its collection. When the Chamber moved out of the Vereins Kirche, the space became an area for the GCHS Archives and Collections (now located at the GCHS offices in the Historic First Methodist Church at 312 West San Antonio Street). Hours of Operation •Beginning May 8, the Vereins Kirche will be open six days a week, year-round, 10 a.m.-4:30 p.m., closed on Sundays. • There is an admission fee of $2.50 which can be purchased at the Vereins Kirche or at Pioneer Museum (325 W. Main Street).

Library History Pioneer Memorial Library is housed in a former Gillespie County Courthouse, which was designed by Alfred Giles. The historic building served as the courthouse from 18821939 when the courthouse shifted to a new building next door. Various governmental organizations occupied the building until it was closed in 1963. Two years later, Mr. and Mrs. Eugene McDermott of Dallas funded the preservation of the building so that it could be used as a public library. It was dedicated in May 1967. In 1983, Mrs. McDermott provided a challenge for a matching grant so that renovations and expansion to the second floor could be accomplished. The community responded, and the renovated library was dedicated in December of 1984.
