Austin: German Free School

It might not look like much from the sidewalk: a limestone house, a few feet above East 10th Street. The German Free School of Austin, built in 1858 with its unique rammed-earth construction, transformed education in Austin. Today, it is the headquarters for the German-Texan Heritage Society, a nonprofit organization that preserves German culture in Texas through festivals, language classes, genealogical searches, and other services.
