Maira Katherine Hofius
In 1874, the same year Trinity Lutheran Church was organized, Maria Katherina Hofius Wunderlich built the house now owned by the Klein, Texas Historical Foundation.
Step back to the late 1880’s as you explore a typical 4 room house in the Big Cypress Community. What do you notice? What rooms are missing? Can you help mop the floor?
Originally located on the south side of Spring-Cypress Road, approximately 1.5 miles west of Stuebner-Airline Road, the house was given to the Klein, Texas Historical Foundation by Carolyn Stonesifer in 1997.
