Monument Hill and Kreische Brewery State Historic Site, 40.4 acres total, is located 1 mile south of La Grange in Fayette County. The tomb at Monument Hill was acquired by the State of Texas in 1907 and transferred to Texas Parks and Wildlife in 1949. In 1956, the archbishop of San Antonio and the citizens of Fayette County deeded an additional 3.58 acres to the site. Another 36-acre tract, including the Kreische Brewery and Kreische home, was added in 1977. The park was opened in 1983, after archaeological study and stabilization had been completed.
