Marker Text This locally quarried limestone building is a good example of late Italianate-style architecture. The façade features rough and smooth-dressed stone, arched windows and doorways, stone quoins and a projecting pressed metal cornice. Charles Schreiner formed the Kerrville Masonic Company in 1890, and Kerrville Lodge No. 697 A.F. & A.M. met here on the second story until 1927, when they moved to Schreiner's former house and rented this space to the Odd Fellows. The ground floor has housed the local post office, C.C. Butt Grocery and Texas Power and Light. The property remained in the Schreiner family until 1959.Recorded Texas Historic Landmark-2008
