San Saba County Historical Museum

Anchor the southeast region of     the Penatuhkah Comanche Trails Partnership.   Educate citizens on the importance of the transatlantic frontier history between the German founders of Fredericksburg and the Penatuhkah band.  A peace treaty between them was signed at San Saba River west of city.  This treaty is a rare, if not unique, unbroken Indian treaty.  The “White Path” of peace from Santa Anna Peaks, through San Saba and many other significant Penatuhkah destinations, to Fredericksburg provides an inspiring example of how we should treat each other if we want peace.
