This Marker is located on Hwy 237 at Rock Street, Round Top. Even though this is only a replica of the original home I love the look of it. Next to this home is a beautiful open field with beautiful trees right off the highway. This home, built in 1852 by Carl Siegismunde Bauer, is of Teutonic architecture, a replica of the family home in Wiesa, Kingdom of Saxony.
If you ever go to Round Top which I recommend, especially if you love to antique shop, you cannot miss this. Let me add, if you do plan to visit Round Top, you need to plan more than a one day visit especially if you go during the scheduled antique shows. Visit Round Top Texas Antiques for more information. There are soo many shops to go to during this time.
