Welcome to our home. The Brenham House was built in the 1920’s on the foundation of what was the first German Lutheran Church of Brenham. Unfortunately, the church was destroyed during the great storm of the 1900’s, leaving the sturdy lime stone steps behind – steps that continue to greet visitors today.

I had the most exciting visit today from a beautiful woman, and her precious family, who actually grew up in our home! I was nervous because I wanted her to like the house, but I knew there had been many changes over the years.
She was able to share, with her boys, some of the stories of her childhood and now they would better understand what she was describing.
I got to ask a lot of questions about the house!
They were in Texas for her mother's 88th birthday.
This is my father's mother, my grandmother, Ruby Kate Rhode and her pet deer!
This picture was on a post card.
She was born and reared in Iota, Louisiana. The family moved to Beaumont, Texas after she graduated high school, in 1919. Someone burnt down her father's two general stores and that is why they moved to Texas.
This is the chandelier in the stairwell at The Brenham House!
It is a lovely fixture that dates back to the late 1800's.
It is a Victorian Parlor gas chandelier that burned kerosene. The kerosene was stored in the brass base of the lamp. It has a chimney and at the top is a smoke bell of opal glass used to snuff out the lamp.
It has an opal glass domed shade and crystals to refract the light. It has been electrically wired and is such a reminder of our history.
Each one is hand made on a potters wheel. They are lead free and dishwasher safe, microwavable and made in the USA!
We have cranberry with white, or teal green with raspberry trim. Each has a picture of our historic home with a vintage '59 Jaguar parked in front. What a wonderful way to remember your trip by drinking your coffee or tea, at home, from you own Brenham House Mug!
