"Driving Trail, established 2006, links 16 historic schools to Vereins Kirche, first Gillespie County School built 1847 on Fredericksburg Market Square. The 120-mile Trail Map directs visitors into the countryside to see one, several, or all schools. See early school BBQ pits, outdoor pavilions, stages and stage curtains, teacherages, tin schools, and two Presidential Schools. No two are alike. Spend an hour or the day. Schools listed on National Register of Historic Places. Members of Country School Association of America. Today they function as community and learning centers, rentals for reunions, other social gatherings, and unique destination weddings."
