308 East San Antonio Street
This Late Victorian: Second Empire style house was built in 1870 around the original 1845 adobe home of Hermann Seele, regarded as the cultural leader of early New Braunfels. The true mansard-style roof was built by Dr. John Lehde, with the rear fachwerk walls of the original house still standing. The mountain laurel tree in the side yard is one of the largest of its kind in the U.S. This house was also known as the Dittlinger Lime Company & Roller Mills Office Building. Now an office building.
