TELLING THE REAL STORIES OF 

        GERMAN IMMIGRATION           

Immerse yourself in the life of a German colonist, the hardships suffered and the freedoms gained,  arriving with Prince Carl to establish what would grow to be the fourth largest city in Texas just five years later.  Emphasis is on the founding German immigrants and their contributions i.e. language, science, education, industrialization, but also includes the contributions and traditions of other cultures present in this area. We tell the REAL stories of the people, events and traditions that have made New Braunfels & Comal County the wonderful place it is, interpreted through authentic artifacts and documents from the collection.
