Eilenberger Trucks

Eilenberger’s Bakery, known as the oldest bakery in Texas operating in its original location at 512 N. John St. in Palestine, was started by F.H. Eilenberger, who introduced the tastes and textures of the cakes he recalled from his mother baking during his boyhood in Leipzig, Germany. At one time, the bakery’s fresh bread was delivered in horse-drawn wagons, and later trucks.
