Forts Trail Region

The former utopian community of Castell features several points of interest, including the Old Schoolhouse, now used for weddings and functions; Trinity United Methodist and St. John Lutheran churches, which were organized in 1852 and 1983, respectively; and the historic General Store and Post Office.

A mile from Castell is Bettina, which at one time was the largest German commune in Texas; today, only a historical marker remains.
