      • The Mission of the Pioneer Museum is to share the cultural panorama of the Texas Hill Country through experiences that enlighten and inspire. The Gillespie County Historical Society was formed in 1934 to preserve and share the history of Fredericksburg, Gillespie County, and the surrounding Texas Hill Country. The first Pioneer Museum site was the Vereins Kirche (located in the 100 block of West Main Street), a 1935 replica of the original structure. The Vereins Kirche today is an extension of the Pioneer Museum. In 1955, the Society bought the historic Kammlah home, store and property - including a smokehouse and barn - that are now part of the current Museum site (located in the 300 block of West Main Street). With other purchases and donations, the current site has grown to encompass 3 acres and 11 buildings, 9 of which are historic structures included on your tour of the Museum grounds. The Society has over 300,000 artifacts within its rich and diverse collection.

        • Established in 1995, the Czech Center Museum Houston (CCMH) is a 501-c-3 non-profit cultural arts organization, with no political or religious affiliation. The Center is based in Houston and was created to celebrate, share and promote the rich cultural abundance of a major Slavic ethnic group and their history. With a worldwide membership composed of members with multiple heritages, its museum and cultural center are considered essential resources for learning about one of our nation's diverse cultures and interwoven histories with others. The goal of the Center is to continue to offer presentations of non-biased, non-political and non-religious events, resulting in a blend of harmonious experiences for people of all ethnicities interested in the culture of a group of Slavs that settled in the central region of Europe and in particular their connection with the Austro-Hungarian Empire out of which multiple nations have derived. For the past fourteen years, CCMH has continued to succeed with highly acclaimed programs to highlight 1,500 years of a group of people settling in central Europe, thanks to the thousands of volunteer hours and community support. In 2007, CCMH joined a group of eighteen museums in the Museum District of Houston to bring its cultural resources to focus on a rich cultural group that has settled in the United States and played a large part in the history of our nation.
