The Lodge On Lake Siesta is into its 10th year of operation, and next spring it will receive a guest returning for a 10 year anniversary as a guest. Other guests are catching up because they are scheduling retreats twice a year and will be coming to their seventh anniversary in January.

In 1849, German immigrant Heinrich Ludwig Kreische purchased 172 acres of land including the Dawson/Mier tomb, now known as Monument Hill. Master stonemason Kreische built a three-story house for his family. In the 1860s, he utilized the spring water from the ravine below his house and started one of the first commercial breweries in Texas. Walk the ruins of this once bustling brewery and envision how Fayette County citizens would come and enjoy a pint of Kreische’s Bluff Beer while looking out towards the beautiful Texas landscape. The Kreische Brewery and home are listed in the National Register of Historic Places.
The Texas Quilt Museum is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit entity. It is housed in two historic 1890s buildings, which provide a fine showcase for both antique and contemporary quilt art with their high ceilings, brick walls, and original hardwood floors. Home for the new museum is the picturesque Central Texas town of La Grange, located on the winding Colorado River between two major highways, making it within easy driving distance of the state’s major cities and airline hubs.
The Old Fayette County Jail was opened in 1883. It was in operation for 102 years. Today it is the home of the Texas Heroes Museum, honoring Texans who have served from the time of the Texas Revolution to present day conflicts around the world to secure and defend freedom and liberty. Veterans of all conflicts are honored, as are the sheriffs that served in the old jail, Texas Rangers, modern law enforcement, firefighters, first responders, the Home Front in WWII, and others who have made personal sacrifices to make Texas a great place to live. Special features include a cell from the old jail, the Bob Lain Memorial Library of military history, replicas of weapons from the Texas Revolution to present, and the last flag to fly on the Battleship Texas.

The impressive Fayette County Courthouse, located in the center of downtown La Grange, is a trip back in Texas history. Persons interested in architecture and county government would enjoy visiting this wonderful courthouse.
