Born May 7, 1878, F.H. Eilenberger was a German immigrant who established a successful — and still operating — bakery in Palestine, Texas. He worked at bakeries in Galveston and Fort Worth before starting this company in 1898. Originally located on the corner of John and Oak streets, the operation was moved to the current site at 512 N. John Street in 1918. Eilenberger also lived there for several years. Thanks to continued management of the operations by his sons, his baked goods continue to delight consumers all over the world. Today the bakery is noted for fruit and pecan cakes, which are produced from a family recipe.
