All open houses and events on our calendar are open to the public.

We invite and welcome you to visit our schools during their open houses and learn more about the German history of the one-room schools in and around Fredericksburg. While you are in the area, stay at one of the local Bed and Breakfasts and visit our Trip Planner page for other historic sites and stores in and around Fredericksburg.

The 2023 Open Houses and Events will be published by the first week of January to help you plan your trips to the historic country schools and the Texas Hill Country.
