D5. Jahn Building (1910)

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 1930s. Some pieces by Johann Jahn are on display locally at the Heritage Village – Museum of Texas Handmade Furniture. Now an office building.
