New Berlin is a peaceful rural community located south of Interstate 10 between San Antonio and Seguin, Texas to the east. New Berlin dates from the 1870s, but was incorporated over one hundred years later in 1980. The first store was set up by Mr. Ed Tewes, and a post office operated from 1878 to 1906.   Seventy New Berliners occupied the gently rolling landscape of New Berlin in the 1880s and as many as 56 students attended the local school.

Come and Take It 

 

Gonzales, TX is home to the infamous and historically significant “Come and Take It” cannon and flag. On October 2, 1835, the little cannon fired the first artillery shot for Texas Independence which led to the annexation of more land to the United States than all the shots fired during the American Revolution.
