City of Niederwald

"Becoming a city, to keep the country"

Founded around 1900 by German colonists, the name is German and translates to "low brushy area" or "low forest". This name was chosen because of the low forest of mesquites in the area. Niederwald is located on the Hays-Caldwell County line in Texas. The dividing line for the two counties is El Camino Real, present day State Highway 21.


The City of Niederwald was proud to present a "Key to the City" and honorary citizenship to Matt and Shelley Hardell of FortWorth, Tx. on February 14, 1999.
