Marker Text In 1901 German native Charles Gebhardt (1874-1920) established Hillsboro's first bakery. He moved his business to this building after it was completed in 1905, using the second floor as living quarters. The brick commercial structure exhibits influences of the Romanesque and Italianate styles and features arched second-story windows, decorative brickwork in the cornice, and corner turrets. The bakery building later was used for millinery and barber shops. Recorded Texas Historic Landmark - 1983
