This Hill Country home is a Texas historical landmark, and it's back on the market with a big price cut

A history-loaded home in the Hill Country Town of Fredericksburg is back on the market with a $600,000 price reduction.

The five-bedroom, six-bath Victorian was listed around February for $3.2 million and around two weeks ago went back on the sales block with an asking price just shy of $2.6 million.  

Built in 1903, the property sits beside Town Creek, two blocks from Fredericksburg's historic Main Street, and the house has enough historical significance to warrant a marker from the state of Texas.

German immigrant Christian Crenwelge, a farmer and cabinetmaker, bought the land in 1872 and operated a molasses press on-site before constructing the home, which he lived in until 1906, according to state records. 

The home's great room has a vaulted ceiling supported by antique timber beams. Restored bead board and original yellow pine floors run through the home, which also includes an antique wardrobe converted into a bar. 

This home is listed by Mike Starks.
