1. Site of the Andreas Lindig Lime Kiln Marker
Inscription. First kiln, eastern Gillespie County. Built 1874 by Andreas Lindig, trained in his native Germany in quicklime making. On his homestead, he found rock to be hauled to this site by ox-wagon, using 7 loads of rock for each “batch” of lime. Post oak wood, burned in a cooking bed, produced high heat which produced the lime. Besides that for his own use, he made lime commercially for neighbors.
     Lindig’s home (built 1874, about .5 mi. s) shows endurance of cement made from his lime. So does the 1963-1969 “Texas White House”, built nearby in 1897 by Willie Meier.
