Touring Fort Martin Scott, The Fort Which Dates Back To Early Fredericksburg

Fredericksburg, Texas might be most commonly known in modern days for their unique shops, wineries and beautiful Hill Country drives, however in the early 1800s it was a very different place. Settlers to the area, mostly German, lived a much more humble life surviving off of the lands they had settled. Around 1848 a fort sprung up and was a part of the landscape for a handful of years. This fort had many jobs within the community but later became abandoned and purchased by a family in the area which transitioned this into a farm and held many different businesses on the site of the old fort including a casino of sorts and many shops. By the late 1940s the City of Fredericksburg had purchased the land after the father of the family, and primary land owner was killed on his land in a dispute. His wife continued to move forward with business until she simply could not and the city intervened and restored the fort to present day condition.
