Quiz: Any guess as to what this is? Answer below.
The Sauer-Beckmann Farm - Rural Life, 1900-1918:
'Johann and Christine Sauer settled this land in 1869. Eventually, the Sauers had 10 children. One of those, Augusta Sauer Lindig, served as midwife at the birth of President Johnson.
Interpreters carry out the day-to-day activities of a turn-of-the-century Texas-German farm family. Farm animals must be cared for on a daily basis, including activities like feeding, milking, gathering eggs and slopping the hogs. The setting for the present-day living history activities is an authentic Hill Country farm.'
'The Beckmann family acquired the property in 1900. A good cotton crop in 1915 allowed Emil and Emma Beckmann to build a new barn, to add a frame room onto the old rock structure and to construct porches connecting to a lovely Victorian house covered with fashionable pressed tin. In 1966, Edna Beckmann Hightower sold the site to the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department. The farm opened to the public in 1975. Since then, time has stood still and the farm remains forever a small piece of Texas as it was at the beginning of the 20th century.'
