"The rich heritage of German culture is evident throughout the Texas Hill Country, where Texans of German descent proudly maintain links with the past. Historical buildings and activities are found throughout the Hill Country, especially in older, predominantly German settlements such as Fredericksburg, Boerne and New Braunfels." Lyndon B.
