Inscription.  J. Peter Wunderlich (1828-1864) migrated from Germany to Texas in 1852. He married Maria Hofius and in 1854 bought 120 acres of farmland in Klein in north Harris County. Peter was killed in 1864 at a gunpowder mill he helped operate during the Civil War. Sons Peter and William Wunderlich continued to farm the land. Peter bought 56 acres of land here in 1887, and built this house in 1891 for his new wife Sophie Krimmel. Originally the house contained four rooms, but four more rooms were soon added. The house was occupied by Wunderlich family members until 1995.
