New Braunfels Herald Zeitung (Newspaper) - August 6, 2005, New Braunfels, Texas GOODFORYOU Photo submitted Tom Hill, left, president of the Southwest Division of Vulcan Materials Company, accepts an award from Ray Schoch, IP President of the Schweers Historical Foundation. Vulcan Materials Company recognized for service Vulcan Materials Company recently received a plaque from the Schweers Historical Foundation for their efforts to preserve several historical homes. In 2001, members of the Schweers family approached Vulcan about the possibility of purchasing the Henry Schweers home with some acreage, even though they had no idea how they could raise the money. The VMC representatives said they not only would be interested in the idea, but that they help and support such community efforts. Since that time, Vulcan Materials Company has assisted in the formation of the Schweers Historical Foundation, Inc. They donated the historic William Schweers Home with 2.3 acres, and committed to donating the historic Henry Schweers Home with additional acreage in the near future. Schweer and Zeda Balzen set sail for Texas in 1855 with six children. The two youngest children perished before reaching our Texas shore. The family Finally arrived in Quihi in Medina County in early 1856 with their four remaining children. Henry was 23, Heyo was 19, their daughter THentje was 17, and William was 13 years old. The three sons changed their last name to Schweers, their father s first name. Trientje fell in love with Mimke Saathoff, who lived just across the Quihi Creek with his parents. They were married on Aug. 19,1856, and immediately built their home. Henry married Johanna Muennink on May 8,1858, and built a new home that same year. Heyo married Margaretha Schlentz on Sept. 2,1865. They built their home shortly thereafter. William married Elizabeth Muennink on Feb. 5,1865 and they built their home in 1872. The Saathoff home burned down in 1973, and the roof was blown off the Heyo home sometime in the 20th century, but the rock walls are still standing. The Henry and William historic homes are still intact and located on land which Vulcan purchased in November 2000 for a railroad track right-of-way leading to a quarry they plan to develop, which is located several miles to the northeast.
