about Sophienburg Museum and Archives:
For his personal home, Prince Carl chose a hill overlooking the beginnings of the town and began his plan to build a castle on the site. His home was to be called Sophienburg, or Sophie's Castle, for his fiancee. However, when he sent for Sophia, she refused to leave Germany and he left Texas.
Today, the Sophienburg Museum and Archives resides on the hill chosen long ago by Prince Carl.
