Also see . . .  Carl H. Guenther House and Pioneer Flower Mills. The Guenthers had a neighborhood family compound; all four houses in the 200 block of East Guenther were dwellings of family members. When built, these houses were not separated from the senior Guenther’s home by the San Antonio River; the original river channel ran behind the mill. Carl Guenther immigrated to Texas from Germany in 1851, moved to San Antonio in 1859, and established this mill, which was later expanded to Pioneer Flower Mills. The original one-story house where he reared his family had two upper stories added in later years. The home is restored and contains a restaurant, gift shop and house museum.
