Anton Kraus and his wife built a log cabin located north of the
dam at Lake Wabaunsee. Anton and his wife were born in Hungary,
he in 1801. Three of their five children were born in Hungary before
the family emigrated to the United States in 1850. They lived in
New York City, Chicago, and Westport, Missouri before homesteading
land that is now part of Lake Wabaunsee.

The second son, Moritz, born in Hungary in 1841, served in the
11th Kansas Calvary during the Civil war.
He married Wilhelmina Welk and their five children were born in this
cabin. When their son Paul took over management of the farm,
he and his wife Linnie Sequist set up house keeping in the log cabin
where their eldest don, Lester was born.

The first thing Anton did after building the cabin was to build an
outdoor oven so his wife could bake breads and pastries as she had
done in Hungary. The great grandchildren of Anton learned to speak
the German language.
