It is decorated with 20 colorful cutouts that represent key scenes in the city's history. But the Maypole itself stands on a old concrete foundation, the remains of a building from the mill complex built by William H. Merriwether in 1852. Merriwether dammed the Comal River and diverted a portion into the present millrace behind the Maypole He harnessed water power for grist, flour and saw mills. In 1860, Joseph Landa acquired the mill property. The 2008 historical calendar produced by Sophienburq Museum and Archives includes a picture of the complex, circa 1890. On one side of the Comal is the present-day Wursthalle; on the other IS a cluster of stone, wood and metal buildings. In that cluster, facing Landa Street, said Wurstfest executive director Suzanne Herbelin, was "a storage building," a grain elevator used by both Merriwether and Landa. Later, the structure also was used by H Dittlinger Mills to store grain. At some point, the storage building was razed and the concrete slab repurposed for the Maypole. The only indication of the foundation's industrial history are rusted metal strips that remain implanted in the concrete — Marilyn Kuehler LAUfiAMcKENZIE I Herald-Zeitung Evidence of where the Harry Landa/Dittlinger grain storage area was once located can be found around the maypole near the Landa Street entrance to Wurstfest Have V(3u seen a piece of Hi'lden History" in New Braunfels you would like to know more about?
