Text: Richard Burger imigrated from Germany about 1859 and served during the Civil War in Terry's Texas Rangers. He returned to Bastrop and bought this newly built (1868-69) Greek Revival home from Sallie and W. C. Powell. Burger married Clara Linke and had two children, Mina and August. Clara was skilled in German "hair art." Burger was a tailor and later a clerk at P. O. Elzner's store. He was an original stockholder in "The Casino," a local cultural center.
