Activities on the Homestead
The cornerstone of Wunderlich Farm is the 1891 house built by the youngest son of the first Wunderlich immigrant, Johann Peter Wunderlich. It was built nearly 200 years ago, and first served as the residence of Peter Wunderlich, his wife Sophie Krimmel Wunderlich and their 12 children.
In the house and its surrounding buildings, you can explore how this area of Texas was settled. Visit the heirloom vegetable gardens and barns filled with tools that served the people of this community.
