Lindheimer Haus

Lindheimer Haus

Lindheimer built his saltbox-styled Fachwerk house in 1852 on land given to him by the Adelsverein. Fachwerk, half-timbered and half-masonry construction, had been used for centuries in Europe and was especially popular in Texas German communities. In the Lindheimers’ house, the roof at the back slopes lower than the front roof. Stucco covers Fachwerk on three sides and brick defines the back of the house. Lindheimer Haus is located at 489 Comal Avenue and serves as a small historical museum today. In 1968 the property was donated by Lindheimer’s family to New Braunfels Conservation Society and was placed on the National Register of Historic Places.
