Castroville is home to one of the oldest structures in Texas, the Steinbach House. This house, originally built in the 1600s in Wahlbach, France, was relocated and restored in Castroville as a gift to the city from the people of Alsace. Beautifully decorated in period pieces donated by numerous Alsatian friends, itís a definite site to see and must stop in Castroville.
