Kerrville in Kerr County, Texas — The American South (West South Central)
Schreiner Wool Warehouse
The wall before you is all that remains of the Schreiner wool warehouse and Lehmann's store. The warehouse was built in 1894 by Captain Charles Schreiner and the building was sold to Gus Lehmann in 1937. Removing the front six feet, Gus Lehmann converted the building into a modern store.
Gus Lehmann was a civic leader later becoming Mayor of Kerrville. The building was in use as a store until it was sold by the Lehmann family to the Peterson hospital for expansion.
When the building was torn down, only this wall remained, which was a party wall between Lehmann's store and the Schreiner dress shop.
