Guided Tour Information
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 founded, various English, German, Czech, and other European citizens settled this area bringing with them their different religious beliefs, tools and ways of life.
The Greater Schulenburg Chamber of Commerce hosts three separate tours of our many points of interest, including the Painted Churches and the area 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.
