Fredericksburg, TX – 09/12/2018

Fredericksburg is the jewel of the “Texas Hill Country”.  It has multiple Year Round walking events.  We chose to do the St. Mary’s Cemetery Event.

Just a nice house.

Ed in front of the Middle School archway entrance.

This cement and rock wall along the school property was built by the Works Project Admin. in 1939.  Sidewalk in new.

Very large house.

Another nice house.

Walter-Jenschke Sunday House built around 1870.

St Mary’s Catholic Cemetery is located on the western edge of town. It has both an old and a new section.

A Calvary sculpture, depicting Jesus on the Cross with mourners at his feet, is in the cemetery.

Loeffler-Weber House is part log, part half timber and stone. It is as old as Fredericksburg.

The Coca-Cola sign from the 30’s on the side of old Kraus Bottling Works building was refurbished in 2017.

I remember these rides being in front of grocery stores.
