Fischer House / Homestead

Fischer HouseGerman immigrant John Heinrich Fischer built this log cabin about 1860 on land he purchased from August Forcke. He and his wife, Auguste (Koch), reared their family here until selling the cabin to their daughter Anna in 1881.

Built of hand-hewn cedar and limestone, the Fischer House includes a front shed roof porch and rear shed roof kitchen. The original dog trot (open hallway through the center of the house) was enclosed in the mid-20th century.

A scarce example of an early log cabin on its original site, the Fischer House is a reminder of Texas' German heritage.

This property is a "private residence".
