Preservation and maintenance of the country schools depends on charitable donations from people like you, our "friends". Are you interested in helping us preserve these rare and valuable resources along with the rich German history of Gillespie County?

The Friends of Gillespie County Country Schools, a non-profit organization, raise funds to modernize and restore 12 historic former schools as community centers in Gillespie County. The 12 schools were closed in the 1950's and 1960's. They are now used as community centers and maintained by community clubs.

Our greatest needs include building restrooms and installing water wells, as well as repairing roofs. No taxpayer monies are used.
