Revitalizing the Historic Heart of

Castroville

Coming Together FOR

The Elsass

Since its founding in 1844, the city of Castroville has formed a rich history, culture, and architectural legacy of its own, with steeply pitched roofs, charming cottages, and a strong Alsatian ancestry.

Today, Castroville families are coming together to ensure the city’s legacy and identity live on for generations to come.

More than 30 Castroville families have banded together to preserve, redevelop, and revitalize the historic heart of the city through renovations and revitalization efforts.

The Elsass will preserve Castroville’s architectural history, enhance local arts and culture, and highlight the local identity of the city.
