Fayetteville Area Heritage Museum was established on May 22, 1986. It was founded by Janette Donaldson, Louis "Buddy" Polansky and his wife Irene. Buddy, the visionary, dedicated his life to salvaging, collecting, and then preserving precious items from Fayetteville and the area during a time when "newer was better". Buddy (pictured at the door) is gone, but his spirit survives. In addition to being the Home of the Teddy Schultz Model Trains and Railroad Collection, the museum also houses Memorabilia from the Baca Band, remnants from the demolished St John Catholic Church circa 1911, and many other fascinating historic artifacts reflecting the area s Czech, German, and African American Heritage.

Artist Talk About Painting Fayette County
Houston artist Andy Dearwater has been visiting Fayette County all fall, photographing and sketching images of the area to be painted in his studio. Landscapes and cityscapes from La Grange to Round Top to Fayetteville and all across the county. Andy's style is realistic and impressionistic, and his small canvases are warm and inviting. This may be the first fine art gallery show featuring an artist focusing on our area for his imagery. We think you will find the show very enjoyable.View some of the work now on our website.
