Fredericksburg: Vereins Kirche Museum

One of Fredericksburg's original buildings built in 1847, the octagonal Vereins Kirche (Society Church) served various functions for more than 50 years as a church, school, fortress and meeting hall, before being torn down. The Depression-era Civil Works Administration helped locals construct a replica in time for the 1936 Texas Centennial. Today, the Vereins Kirche Museum offers artifacts and historical photos depicting German-Texan culture.
