1868 German Emigrant Farm

Peek into the life of the Fritz Kruger family, not long after they emigrated to Texas from the Dessau region of Germany. Thirteen children were raised in the one-room log cab in, with the girls slee ping in the loft and the boys in the yard and barn. Meals were prepared in the outdoor kitchen, where you can smell biscuits baking in the Dutch Oven and a meaty stew bubbling in the large cast-iron pot. The stacked cedar-post fence that rings the yard contains a Devil’s Gate, a gate without hinges whose colorful name is only part of its history.
