Marker Text Carl Victor Windwehen moved to New Braunfels with his mother and young daughter after his wife, Charlotte (stocker), had died. He was the only dentist listed in the city’s 1906 telephone directory. Dr. Windwehen married Lina Coreth in 1910, and the family moved into this house, a wedding gift to his new bride. Carl died in 1946, and Lina lived here until her death in 1975. The Queen Anne style modified L-plan house with center passage is of wood frame construction with double drop pine siding, and original bays on two of the four sides. Other historic elements include early sleeping porch and nursery additions, a garage and a washhouse
