    Typical of the homes of early German settlers, this two-room dwelling was built by John Kush about 1855. It originally stood on south Presa Street. It was occupied in 1895-96 by William Sidney Porter, who gained national renown as the short story writer O. Henry. Here he issued a weekly humourous newspaper, The rolling stone. In 1960 the structure was moved to this location by the Kush Family and the Lone Star Brewing Company.
