Located near the busy main street section of Fredericksburg, this small and quiet museum is a nice break from the busy shopping area. The museum is all in one room, and has quite a few artifacts from the early days of the city. Museum is free, but donations are welcomed. Docent was very helpful and was happy to answer all questions.

The history displays had so much to offer. There is a mammoth tusk found only a mile away from the town, and the old bell. Displays at this small museum tell the story of the inhabitants (Native Indians - settlers). The town people were unionists (1 of 2 counties in Texas to be so in the Civil War) and there is information about how martial law was imposed on the town and how Confederates massacred people from this town and another due to the affiliation with loyalty to the US. Information here tells of a treaty (it was kept) between the Comanche Indians and the town. We did not intend to visit the museum and did so when a torrential storm caught us outside. I'm so glad that it rained!

This 1930s reconstruction of the original building is absolutely lovely and sits right in the middle of town in the Marktplatz. The building is closed on Sundays so we were only able to see the exterior and to wander around the memorial garden that is situated behind the Society Church. There is also a playground and benches and picnic tables near by. It is a nice break from busy shopping area on Main Street.

No visit to Fredericksburg is complete without a visit to this historic site - it is on donation and there is lots to read up on. The tour guide was very informative and friendly. The history of Fredericksburg is explained here
