    Swiss immigrant Josef Schmid began a mercantile business in Brenham in 1880. He was joined by his brothers Benjamin and Sigmund to form Schmid Bros. in 1889, and in 1899-1900 they erected this building to house their business enterprises.
Built in the Renaissance revival style, it features multi-bay configurations on both floors and round-arched windows with hood moldings.
Sold by Schmid Bros. in 1934, it has remained a vital part of Brenham's business district.
