Tours of the Schulenburg Area
Schulenburg, Texas is called a “railroad town”, “halfway to everywhere”, the “musician town”, “home of the painted churches”, “gateway to the rolling hills” and many others. It was founded when the Galveston, Houston and San Antonio Railway reached here in 1873. At that time the many people in the communities of Lyons and High Hill moved to the new railroad town of Schulenburg. Schulenburg was named after Louis Schulenburg who donated the land for the city. Before the town of Schulenburg was born English, German, Czech and other European citizens settled this area bringing with them their religion beliefs, tools and way of life.
The Greater Schulenburg Chamber of Commerce hosts two separate tours of our many points of history; one, the exclusive tour of the area’s Painted Churches and the other a tour of the area’s four museums. Each tour is led by a docent who will “step – on” your bus or in your car to narrate particular places of interest. Click the images below for more information.
