This doll bed was made by Carl Haude for his grandchildren. The doll also belonged to the grandchildren of Carl Haude. The dolls name is Dimples. This is currently on display in the Peter Wunderlich Homestead. All to often during tours we overlook some of the coolest artifacts. Thank you to the Haude family for allowing this to be a part of the Klein, TX museum.
This farm wagon belonged to William Krahn (1859-1931) who came from Germany with his parents in 1860. William gave the wagon to his son Sikon, when he got married in 1922. Simon have it to his son, Earl, when he began farming in 1945. The wagon dates back to 1890.
Simon’s aunt, Ephrsine, loved in Bellville. One time the Krahns hitched up the wagon and went to visit her. Bows, like the ones pictures here, were placed so the wagon could be covered. The wagon had to ford the Brazos River to reach Bellville and Agatha, Simon’s wife, was so frightened she kept her eyes closed the entire time.
