This is a shot I took last fall during a visit to the Monument Hill State Historical Site near La Grange, TX. The house was built by Heinrich Kreische in the 1850’s from stone quarried on the property. Its a testament to the skill and dedication of those early stonemasons that the house stands today and makes a wonderful photographic subject.
