Sirnic and Karen Sirnic were murdered by serial killer Angel Maturino Resendiz on May 2, 1999. Their parsonage was adjacent to the train tracks.HistoryWeimar was founded in 1873 in anticipation that the Galveston, Harrisburg and San Antonio Railway was going to build through the site. The community was first called "Jackson", after D. W. Jackson, a native Georgian and area landowner who donated land for the railroad right-of-way and the townsite.

Peirce, who authorized Jackson to sell lots at the site, had visited Weimar, Germany, and was favorably impressed.Use our online itinerary creator: Weimar and all its delights await.
