About New Braunfels TX
Founded by Prince Carl from Solms Braunfels, Germany in 1845, New Braunfels was the first Texas colony of German immigrants. German pioneers first arrived at the location north of San Antonio and led by Nicolaus Zink where the Guadalupe and the Comal and Rivers converge.
The Society for Noblemen also known as the Society for the Protection of German Immigrants in Texas made some arrangements for numerous German immigrants to settle in Texas under Prince Carl, who was the Commissioner General. In 1844. The first immigrants started to arrive by ship at the Texas coast. By Wagon train, they then traveled inland to land grants that were bought by the Adelsverein. In 1845, a man named Ferdinand Lindhiemer recommended that Prince Carl should purchase a parcel of land that has a strong freshwater spring from the Veramonte land grant.
These first pioneers divided the land, built a fort, and starting planting crops and constructing their homes all throughout the spring of 1845. Prince Carl returned to Germany soon after establishing the community and left the management of the community to a man named John Meusebach. These German pioneers numbered from 300 to 400 by the summertime. On the Lahn River in Braunfels, West Germany, the settlement been incorporated under the name of the estate of Prince Solms.
It was speculated that the Adelsverein wanted to establish a German principality in this militarily and politically weak Republic of Texas. However, in 1845, when Texas became a state, those hopes were dashed.
In 1846, the second wave of immigrants headed for New Braunfels began to arrive next to the coast of Texas., while the Adelsverein became dangerously close to bankruptcy. There were three disasters that were coincidental with the arrival of this new group of pioneers. First, the oxcart teamsters who had been contracted to transport the German immigrants and their belongings were diverted to the south Texas coast to help with the war effort as the result of the start of the Mexican American war between Mexico and the US. Meanwhile, some extraordinary rains resulted in flooding to the rivers and streams between New Braunfels and the coast of Texas. This made passage inland passage even more difficult than it already was. Lastly, an outbreak of Cholera killed numerous immigrants.
Meusebach, who was the manager of the community encouraged the pioneers to establish settlements in neighborhoods in the surrounding area and stabilized the finances of the settlement. Fredricksburg, Texas, was the largest of the new communities, which was located 80 miles to the northwest of New Braunfels.
The German immigrants of New Braunfels benefited location of the community on the road between San Antonio and Austin, as well as the reliable water power that was provided by Comal Springs. There wasn’t much time wasted in establishing the requirements that soon established New Braunfels as the commercial center for a growing agriculture region, such as craft shops, millworks, and establishing the processing of business stores. Several of these German immigrants brought a business acumen and craftsman and artisanal skills to their new home.
New Braunfels had emerged as a manufacturing center that supplied clothing, furniture, leather goods, farm implements, and wagons for these settlers in the hills of Central Texas within 10 years of its establishment. The new community was also an important marketplace for the expanding agricultural frontier. Its markets supplied places as far away as the Nassau province of Germany, New York, and New Orleans and as near as Victory and Bastrop. The flourishing community of New Braunfels was the fourth most populous in Texas only behind Houston, San Antonio, and Galveston and had a population of 1,723 people by 1850.
Proceeding as well as the cultural and social aspects of New Braunfels along with its economic progress. Established during the early years of the community were congregations of Catholics, Methodists, Lutherans, and Evangelical Protestants, and each undertook the building of their respective church buildings. African Americans established the Methodist and Baptist during the late 1860’s.
A church school was the first school in New Braunfels, which gave way to a community school. A school district was established within the New Braunfels Academy in 1858. The residents of New Braunfels voted unanimously to tax themselves, in order to support this school district. This was 18 years prior to the Constitution of the Texas provided for such local taxation for local schools all throughout Texas. Fredricksburg, Galveston, and New Braunfels, were amongst the first Texas communities to support schools through the implementation of taxation. During the 1860’s, the Sisters of Divine Providence established Catholic schools. In the 1900’s Hispanic schools were established and schools for African Americans were established. During the decades prior to 1990, the New Braunfels Independent School District supported five schools. New Braunfels has a rich German history and is a great place to work, play, live, and raise a family.
