Historical Marker
     Originally a one-room house, this structure was built about 1856 by German immigrant John Vogt. He and his wife, Franciska (Willrich), added to the original house as their family grew. The interior walls of the central portion display evidence of the home's fachwerk construction. A significant example of early German architecture in Texas, the homestead remained in the Vogt family for more than 100 years. Recorded Texas Historic Landmark - 1983
