HISTORY: August Henry "Gus" Bower was born in Bethel, Missouri in 1869. He came to Boerne when he was a young man, married Ida Vogt, and moved to the old Bower place just west of town where farming and stock raising was their livelihood. The next owner of the property was Hugo Schwope whose family now owns the house and property.
