Inscription.  
This limestone building was constructed about 1870 when the property was owned by John Adams Alberthal. It was designed with a commercial area on the front and a two-story residential section in the back. Christian Kloth purchased the home in 1878, and following his death in 1904, it was inherited by his daughters Anna Marie (Kloth) Ludwig (d. 1930) and Caroline Kloth (d. 1940). Used for various shops, it remained in the Ludwig family until 1966.

This building was originally built with the common principles of German thrift that many of the immigrant families of Fredericksburg displayed. Combining a large commercial area in the front, with an even larger residential area in the rear. (Submitted on December 10, 2017, by Cosmos Mariner of Cape Canaveral, Florida.)
