Crabapple, Texas is an unincorporated farming and ranching community 10.5 miles (16.9 km) north of Fredericksburg in Gillespie County, Texas located on Crabapple Creek,[3] about halfway between Fredericksburg and Enchanted Rock State Park[4] at an elevation of 1,775 feet. [5] The school was designated a Recorded Texas Historic Landmark number 10022 in 1994.[6] The school was added to the National Register of Historic Places in Texas on May 6, 2005, NRHP Reference #:05000390.[7]

Settlers and community

The initial non-indigenous settlers in Crabapple were German immigrants Friedrich Welgehausen, Jacob Land, Adam Pehl, Mathias Schmidt,[8] Nicolaus Rusche,[9] James Riley, Heinrich Kneese, and Jacob[10] and Adam Fries [11] in the mid 19th Century.[12]

On December 15, 1847, a petition was submitted to create Gillespie County. In 1848, the legislature formed Gillespie County from Bexar and Travis counties. While the signers were overwhelmingly German immigrants, names also on the petition were Castillo, Pena, Munos, and a handful of non-German Anglo names.

Crabapple School and post office

The original schoolhouse also served as a post office from 1887–1910.

Balanced Rock

Balanced Rock [13] [14] was a famous local landmark that perched atop Bear Mountain in the Crabapple Community.[15] The natural stone pillar, about the size of a small elephant, precariously balanced on its small tip. It fell prey to vandals[16] who dynamited it off its base in April 1986.
