Friends of Gillespie County Country Schools Annual BBQ Meal and Prize Drawing Benefit


We are preserving the past to enrich the future. Visit our properties on the Driving Trail, established 2006, links 16 historic schools to Vereins Kirche, first Gillespie County School built in 1847 on Fredericksburg Market Square. The 120-mile Trail Map directs visitors into the countryside to see one, several, or all schools. See early school BBQ pits, outdoor pavilions, stages, stage curtains, teacherages, tin schools and two Presidential Schools. No two are alike. Spend an hour or the day!
