Built in 1915, the Edwin Wolters Memorial Museum was originally purposed as the Wolters' family home. The two-floored establishment housed not just the family, but also maids and other household servants. The first floor of the home, which is now the main entrance to the museum, was the living quarters for the servants, the work room, and kitchen. Upstairs functioned as the actual home for the Wolters family. Unsure of whether the chicken or the egg came first, both the historic Herder home (1882) and Wolters family home (1915) are now cornerstone pieces in the history of Shiner, the cleanest little town in Texas.
