► DID YOU KNOW?
According to Judy Young at the Greater New Braunfels Chamber of Commerce:
■ The curb around the plaza, as we drive around it, do we really think about its historv^
It tells volumes about the pride of this community.
In 1895, a 50th anniversary founding celebration was held in downtown with parades, music and fellowship. The money left over from the celebration resulted in our beautiful fountain on Mam Plaza.
This, however, provided a convienent watering trough for horses So, the curbs and sidewalks were installed a few years later to prevent the watering of horses in the fountain.
