Friends for the Preservation of Historic Landa Park invite you to explore the new historical book, the only one of it's kind: New Braunfels Historic Landa Park, Its Springs and Its People (438 pages). This beautiful coffee table collectors item also includes 2 companion volumes, Native American Artifacts, Comal Springs in Landa Park (14 pages) and The Comal Springs of Historic Landa Park (44 pages).
Co-authors Rosemarie Gregory and Arlene Seales, along with local artists Elizabeth Felton and Channe Felton worked for 5 years on the in-depth research which includes revealing information about the formation of the Comal Springs millions of years ago, Native Americans near the springs, a royal settlement of the site by a German Prince, the development of the park by Harry Landa, and many other noteworthy social and historic events over the years, including Venetian Carnivals, Miss Texas Pageants and the celebration of the park's Diamond Anniversary.
These books highlight why Landa Park has remained in the heart of New Braunfels since the late 1800s. The authors encourage everyone to take a journey through its years of existence by viewing the many photos of the beauty and serenity of this Legacy Park of Texas and learn the fascinating story.
