Old Blanco County Courthouse History
Built during 1885-1886 and designed by well-known Austin architect Frederick Ernst Ruffini, the courthouse was accepted for use by Blanco County on January 29, 1886. The grand new courthouse in Blanco was only used by the county for a scant four years as an election in 1890 moved the county seat to Johnson City. The abandoned Courthouse continued to serve the community well in a multitude of ways for the next eighty years.
The town of Albert has a simple name, and not many people have ever heard of it, but its beginnings date back to 1877 and the romantic days of the frontier, pioneering and settlement in the rich German farmlands of the Texas Hill Country.
According to various histories (and disputed by some of them), three men of Fredericksburg – the blacksmith Fritz Wilke, George Maenius and John Petri – sought new grazing lands for their cattle; Wilke bought his land from a man named Elmeier, who would be gunned down in a robbery-shootout.
