Louis Herman Bruhl (1849-1931) immigrated to the United States from Germany in 1867. He became an American citizen in 1870, the same year he married Leonie Julia Hammale. A merchant and pharmacist, Bruhl lived in Waco and Rockport, and served as U.S. Consul in Italy (1894-1899) before moving to Llano to open a drug store in 1900. His son Adolph (1876-1937), also a pharmacist, joined him in business. The drugstore building they erected here in 1922 was donated by the Bruhl family to the County Historical Society in 1965 and was later remodeled for a museum.
