Serbin is a community in southwestern Lee County, Texas located about 50 miles (80 km) east of Austin, originally established by Sorbs (Wends) in the mid 1850s.
The majority of Wendish immigrants to the United States settled in Texas, using Serbin as the "mother colony". It was during 1854 that about 550 Wendish Lutherans from congregations in Prussia and Saxony left for Texas under the leadership of John Kilian. Upon arriving in Texas, the people of Serbin became some of the earliest members of the Missouri Synod of the Lutheran church. St. Paul's Lutheran Church, stands as a typical example of Wendish architecture; the pulpit is located in the balcony of the church.
Originally called Low Pin Oak Settlement, the communities name was changed to Serbin meaning Wendish land, before 1860.
The Texas Wendish Heritage Museum is house in a former parochial school in Serbin.
