Ernst Gruene was a true Renaisance Man of the Victorian Era. Interested in all things natural, this room has the bare wood walls of the initial construction. Native American Indian Artifacts decorate the walls of this room, and a prominent bay window enhances the structure.
Hanna, born to Ernst and Antoinette after their arrival in Texas, was the middle child. In her later years, she returned to care for her aging parents, and stayed in this room. This is the largest suite in the house.
