Marker Text The son of German immigrants, Henry D. Gruene was born in New Braunfels in 1850. In 1872 he built this home, in what was then the town of Goodwin. Gruene became a leader in the community, which later was renamed for him. Although the town declined after Gruene's death in 1920 and now is part of New Braunfels, this Victorian home, with its elaborate Eastlake detailing, stands as a monument to his contributions.Recorded Texas Historic Landmark-1984
