Fredericksburg, Texas

The Admiral Nimitz Museum is downtown's landmark building
Fredericksburg, Texas
  Fredericksburg is the heart of the Texas Hill Country. German farmers settled here in 1846, attracted by fertile soil and a mild climate. Much of Fredericksburg’s distinctive past remains in many native limestone houses, stores, public buildings, monuments and a square. Shops proudly featuring Texas and German art, crafts, antiques and culinary delights have made Main Street one of the state’s favorite destinations. Beyond, scenic spring-fed streams, reservoirs, caves and a massive granite dome provide all sorts of recreation opportunities in surrounding hills and valleys.
