Fredericksburg, Texas

We figured it has been a good five years since we visited Fredericksburg, so we decided it was time to do it again.

The town has certainly expanded since the last time we were here. In fact we are sure we never saw most of the downtown area before.  I remember the Walmart, but most of the shops were new to us.

We had lunch at Silver Creek Beer Garden, which was a very old building with all the original woodwork….beautiful

It was an hour and a half trip one way so we didn’t stay in town real long …. we had our doggies at home waiting for us … but we sure did enjoy ourselves.

Remember, you are loved.

  1. Howdy B&J,
    You're right, you hadn't seen that part of F'burg before, because it's BRAND NEW and just 'built' to look 'old'... Chamber of Commerce rules !!!
    When we first went to F'burg , about 20 years ago, it was 4-5 BLOCKS LONG and looked just like it does today...
    Joyce was working with the Economic Development Director, here in Coleman, and talked to the EDC director in F'burg... He said there were only about 5-6K people WHO LIVED IN F'burg and most of the businesses were OWNED by people from AUSTIN & SAN ANTONIO... Just an 'old' German town... hehee
    Hope the Mossman's enjoyed their 'German' food... The best we've found was at THE BAVARIAN INN....
    Just remember y'all are too, also..... Come see us when you can...

  2. That looks like a real neat place and another great time you had. We will be sure to see Fredricksburg when we roll through TX.

    Thanks for taking us along.
