Naegelin’s in American Profile

Texas' Oldest Bakery featured in American Profile

Krause’s grandparents and great-grandparents also savored pastries and breads from Naegelin’s—Texas’ oldest bakery—which has a history as rich and deep as the chunky apple filling in its famous 2-foot-long strudels. German immigrant Edouard Naegelin, a Civil War veteran, opened the bakery with a sack of flour and less than a dollar to his name in 1868, and the aroma of fresh-baked goodies has lured customers to the same downtown corner in New Braunfels since 1870.
