1846 – Fredericksburg Founded May 8

Baron Otfried Hans von Meusebach, (official Founder of Fredericksburg) expecting more German settlers to New Braunfels in the winter of 1845-1846, found a site 80 miles northwest where resources were abundant. Lands were cleared. Town lots were distributed, each settler receiving a town lot and 10 acres in the vicinity of the settlement.
