VEREINS KIRCHE MUSEUM
ABOUT VEREINS KIRCHE MUSEUM
Vereins Kirche Museum tells the story of the two Vereins Kirche buildings. The story begins with the first German settlers to Texas and continues to present-day Fredericksburg from the viewpoint of the Vereins Kirche.
The original Vereins Kirche was a multi-purpose building which stood in the middle of Main Street for fifty years (1847-1897). The building was a church, school and meeting place for the people of the community. The original building was demolished in 1897.
The replica Vereins Kirche, which you see today, was completed in 1935 through a partnership with the Gillespie County Historical Society and the Works Progress Administration, or WPA, under President Franklin D. Roosevelt’s presidency.
