    Here is the town's first museum, opened by the Historical Society in 1935. Here are a number of significant exhibits, which illustrate the colorful history of Texan-German immigrants. It's located inside this restored version of the town's original church, called the Vereinskirche. Be sure to check out the various monuments around the museum. One is dedicated to Texas' very own President Lyndon B. Johnson, who grew up around here.

    One of the buildings I really liked in Fredericksburg was the Vereins Kirche. This unique looking 8-sided building was the first public building in town and served as a church, a school and a meeting hall. Today it is a museum (associated with the Pioneer Museum) filled with interesting, rotating displays about the history of the town and the church. Hours are 10 AM to 4:30 PM Tuesday through Saturday (plus Monday and Sunday in the summer). Admission is free but donations are appreciated.
