New Braunfels, Texas. New Braunfels was founded on March 21, 1845, Good Friday. The founding of New Braunfels often referred to as the "City of a Prince," had a major impact upon the immediate area as well as the beginning of West Texas heading towards a civilized economy. In addition to economic growth this early colony brought religion, organized public education, and other benefits to the area.

School has been held uninterrupted in New Braunfels since the morning of August 11, 1845. Hermann Seele began teaching the children of the new settlement in both English and German under the elm trees in the grass prairie at the foot of Sophienburg Hill. Religious services were also held under the same elm trees where Seele began teaching the area children.

St. Martin's Lutheran Church is said to be the oldest Lutheran Church in Texas. The church was built in 1851. The First Methodist congregation was organized on March 7, 1853 and the First Baptist Church building was constructed in 1905.

Landmarks and historical sites are now getting serious attention as evidenced by the revitalization of the Sophienburg Museum, restoration of the Ferdinand Lindheimer Home, the development of Conservation Plaza and the creation of the Museum of Texas Handmade Furniture. The old is being preserved but modern local government is bringing the latest in facilities and services to its citizens.
