Pioneer Memorial Library


Certainly one of the most beautiful buildings in Fredericksburg is occupied by the Pioneer Memorial Library. This historic structure began life as the second courthouse for Gillespie County and was designed by famed architect Alfred Giles. The stone for the project was quarried just northeast of town. It was constructed in 1881/1882 and served as the courthouse until 1939. In 1966-77 the building was renovated with underwriting from Mr. and Mrs. Eugene McDermott and was dedicated as the library in 1967. Today, the library offers great resources in print and online as well as a large children's section
