Muenster, Texas

Muenster was founded in 1889 by Emil and Carl Flusche on the Missouri, Kansas, and Texas Railroad. The German brothers wanted to call their settlement Westphalia, but after discovering a town of that name had already been established, they called their colony Muenster, for the capital of their native Westphalia, Germany. Oil was discovered in the 1930s with pump jacks dotting pastures and fields in every direction. Until then, the economy had been dairy farming and agriculture.

Today, the rural community's economy is rich with agricultural products, as well as diversified manufacturing. Muenster's traditional German customs and Texas hospitality blend well and visitors are always "willkommen." Be sure to visit Muenster's glockenspiel, the German-style clock tower that features carved wooden dancing figures and plays music. It is one of just a handful of glockenspiels in the country.
