About This Town

Schroeder was settled by some of the first German immigrants who came ashore at Indianola. The community grew around the local Germantown School. As the town grew, it adopted the name and when a post office was applied for in 1890, the town’s official name became Germantown. By the 1890s, Germantown had a gin, a blacksmith and a dance hall. The school was used for church services by visiting clergy until 1893 when St. Luke’s Lutheran church was organized. The church built a temporary structure, replacing it in 1905 with a brick building. The town remained small, with a population under 100. After WWI and a national resentment toward German names and the teaching of German, the residents decided to rename their village. The name of Schroeder was used to honor a soldier killed in “The War to End All Wars.” The town suffered a fire in the mid 1920s that took out most of the businesses, but spared the dance hall. The population increased as the town rebuilt but the post office closed its doors in 1944. The population in the late 1960s had increased to just over 200 residents which grew to 350 over the next 20 years. The dance hall, which is still in business after 118 years has reached legendary status – being a venue where some of the biggest names in country music have performed. Schroeder appears on the TxDoT Goliad County map where three cemeteries are shown within a mile of town. The oldest is the Mistletoe Cemetery – due north of Shroeder’s intersection.

Famous for Schroeder Hall supposedly the second oldest Dance Hall in Texas. Many famous Country-Western singers passed through here on there way to stardome.
