New Ulm Homes & Ranches for Sale

new ulm homes for saleNew Ulm is one of the premier German settlements in Texas. There’s a lot of history for such a small and tranquil place. Richard King of the King Ranch passed through New Ulm and tried his hand at cigar manufacturing before heading south and in the 1920s a New Ulm store was burgled by none other than one of the Newton Boys although we can’t remember which one.

Like many towns in Austin and Fayette Counties, the original settlers were Anglo-American settlers who sold out to eager German buyers who arrived literally by the boatload in the 1840s and 50s. The original name of Duff’s Settlement was replaced with the much more Germanic name with the founding of the post office in 1852.

As early as the 1850s New Ulm had six general stores, five blacksmiths, and three breweries. Tobacco was a major cash crop and cigars were manufactured in homes and at least one factory. The arrival of the railroad (Missouri, Kansas and Texas) in 1892 just increased New Ulm’s already prosperous economy.

There were 500 people in New Ulm in 1930. Current population estimate is at 650, same figure since 1990.
