This small three-room Sunday House (weekend house) located at 385 Tolle Street has been marked as a local historical landmark by the City of New Braunfels Historic Landmark Commission. The house can trace its heritage to the founding fathers in 1845 when immigrant Nicholas Zuercher was awarded 10 acres in the country and 1/2 acre in town by the German Immigration Company. He drew lot number 142 from a hat, which number is still the legal description of the property today. The site is shown on the German Immigration Company Map as pictured in the History of New Braunfels 1844-1946 by Oscar Haas.
Nicholas Zuercher was a farmer. The house was later acquired by Casper Blum, a musician; Wilhelm, a shoemaker; Charles Floegle, a merchant whose store was where NBU now stands.
The historic Landmark Commission is hopeful of marking many homes and properties during this Sesquicentennial year to ensure their future existence for generations to come. Please direct your inquiries to the City of New Braunfels Building Department or to one of the Historic Landmark Commissioners Don Forres, Chairman; or Preston Stasis, Vice-Chairman.

Project Graduation rally attracts crowd
By CRAIG HAMMETT
A project aimed at giving high school seniors a safe place to have fun on graduation night kicked off Saturday at a local restaurant.
School officials, parents, teachers and students gathered at Luby’s cafeteria to support Project Graduation, an all-night alcohol-free, drug-free party held immediately after each high school’s graduation ceremony.
“I can tell you it makes a difference,” said County Judge Carter Casteel, a former teacher at Canyon High who said as a parent she saw the positive effects after the program started in 1987.
From now until May 13, Luby’s cafeteria in New Braunfels will donate five percent of a person’s bill (excluding sales tax) to Project Graduation.
The cashier will give a customer a card with a color corresponding to one of the three county high schools. The customer may choose which high school he or she wants the donation to go to, New Braunfels (blue), Canyon (pink), or Smithson Valley (yellow).
If customers do not have a card, they can ask for one.
Linda Seubert, manager of the New
Braunfels Luby’s, said the cafeteria will donate an extra $300 to the school that raises the most money.
Project Graduation relies on donations and fund-raisers. Donna Lehr with the Canyon High project said upcoming events include a nine-pin bowling tournament, golf tournament and raffle. She encouraged businesses to donate items for prizes at the graduation parties.
“The more gifts and cash prizes there are, the more the kids are interested,” she said.
