New Braunfels Walk – 04/28/2018

Our walking event started at the old Church Hill School, built in 1870, but is now a museum. It is across the street from the New Braunfels Conservation Society’s Old Town. Old Town is an outdoor museum that consists of a 3.5-acre plaza with 18 historic buildings. We walked through the grounds.

Entrance to the start area with a historical marker.

Walkers gathered on the front porch of the old school registering.

 

Spiva-Welsch Barn-1849. This building became part of the museum complex in 1972.

Forke Store-1865

Star Exchange and Billiard Room-1865. It was built as a saloon. In 1872, the Herald Zeitung newspaper took up residence until 1957, when it became a barber shop.

In the center is the Freiheit School – 1881. On the right  is the Lohse-Fischer House 1865. On the left is the Locksted-Seibold House – 1855.
