Marker Text One of the German immigrants who arrived in New Braunfels in 1845, Joseph Klein built this simple frame house about 1852. Origianally it stood at the corner of San Antonio and Market Streets. In 1859 Klein sold the property to William Kuse, a shoemaker who kept his shop in part of the house. The structure was moved here to the back of the lot in 1898, when Kuse's daughter Emilie (1854-1903) and her husband Theodor Eggeling (1851-1916) built the Eggeling Hotel.
