Jahn Building (1910) – D5

494 South Seguin Avenue – Johann Jahn was among the first settlers of New Braunfels.  He became a renowned furniture maker in the ensuing decades, his reputation spreading to New York.  After his death, his son and grandson built this building and continued the business of fine hand-crafted furniture until the 1930’s.  Some pieces by Johann Jahn are on display locally at the Heritage Village – Museum of Texas Handmade Furniture.  Now an office building.
