Poetry to My Ears!

Robin's Nest at The Brenham House is located 
at the top of the stairs and is the coziest room 
that we offer.  It has a queen sized bed, 
private bath with a shower, two comfortable recliners, flat screened T.V., DVD player, wireless internet, plush robes, specialty soaps, and newly installed individual controlled a/c and heat split units.  The unit is very efficient and quiet and you can make the call on the temperature that 
is right for you! 

Hope is the thing with feathers, 
that perches in the soul.
And sings the tune without the words
and never stops at all.
-Emily Dickinson

Hand Woven Blanket

This is part of a hand woven blanket that 
my grandmother's family made.  She brought it with her to Texas when she and her brother moved from their farm in Indiana, after losing both parents at age 14.  It was a blanket that four generations used and it was well worn.  I took the ragged blanket and lovingly framed parts of the blanket for each of my brothers, my mom, and myself.

History of the Churches at 700 Clinton Street

     The Brenham House was built on the 1891 foundation of the first Lutheran Church of Brenham.  The home has the cruciform plan just as the church was built.  Services were delivered in German until the 1900's.  This church was destroyed by the Great Storm of 1900 that devastated Galveston and the Gulf Coast.
     A second church was built on the original foundation in 1901.  Then congregation decided to build a third church on Third Street and dedicated it in 1925.  Saint Paul's Evangelical Lutheran Church is still on Third Street, Brenham.
