Martin Frank House Needs Help Moving to New Home

The Frank House, which has been at its original location since the 1840s, is one of the oldest structures still standing in the Klein Community.
 
This historic home once belonged to the McDougle family, later rented by the Pevateaux family, and the Frank family moved into it during the late 1880s.
 
The house is important to the history of the three Klein Founding Families’ nationalities discussed at the Wunderlich Farms Interactive History Park.
 
Baird’s goal is to see the house moved to Wunderlich Farm, where it can undergo an extensive restoration process.
 
Moving the Frank House to Wunderlich Farm is no easy task as the structure will have to be cut into thirds.
 
The roof will be the most difficult to transport and put back together at its new location.
 
“Once the pieces of the Frank House make their way to the museum, they will be put back together on blocks, a new roof will be installed, and 50 percent of the outside boards will need replacing,” said Baird.
 
While preserving history is a worthy and necessary undertaking, it is costly and can’t be done without the support of the local community.
 
The Klein Historical Foundation is asking for support through monetary donations from the Klein Community to see this project come to fruition and restore this history within our school district.
 
Interested donors can contact the Klein Historical Foundation for more info at www.kleinhistorical. org/.
 
“We have a huge opportunity here to make history come alive and show these aren’t only names on the front of our school buildings,” said Baird.
 
“It’s not just a way to complete the puzzle of the Frank family’s history, but to also tie together the entire Klein Founding Families’ history as well.”
