New Bremen, on Farm Road 626 five miles southwest of Karnes City in Karnes County, was a farming community settled around 1900 by people largely of German descent. It had two different schools, in which prior to World War I some of the instruction was in German. Nearby Germania Hall provided a place for dances and other social functions. During the 1940s New Bremen had two schools, a business, and a number of scattered dwellings. Only a cemetery and the shell of its last school remained in 1990.
