Historic Bastrop Touches:

  • Antique front doors witnessed many decades of history on Bastrop Main Street in the building where Maxine’s Café now operates
  • Original part of the house was once located nearby on the old Bastrop farm at the edge of town. It was moved to its present location around 1920 when Water Street was extended past Farm Street.
  • <This is a little quirky> The previous bathroom location is now the master closet, and the floor still bears the faint signature of W.R. Kesselus dated March 7, 1945. Kesselus was a popular plumber who autographed his ‘work’ throughout Bastrop. His son, Ken Kesselus, is a Bastrop County historian who served as Mayor of Bastrop from 2014 – 2017.
