The community was one of the centers of German abolitionism and unionism before and during the Civil War. After the conflict it became a quiet Hill Country hamlet.  It remains unincorporated, but several businesses have set up shop there in recent years.  The popular Saint Tryphon and Sister Creek wineries are also spots to sample some Texas Hill Country wines. Be sure to take some back home with you! Sisterdale Dance Hall is a great place to book weddings, events and other celebrations, and the Black Board Bar B Q is a local and visitor treasure for Texas BBQ! SISTERDALE
