Jahn Plaza to include building, adjacent tracts
By MARJORIE COOK
JAHN PLAZA — A partnership of Paul Norwood, Rob Eversberg and Larry O’Neill is developing Jahn Plaza which will include not only the recently renovated Jahn Building of early furniture craftsman Johann Jahn but adjoining properties in the 400 block of S. Seguin Ave. and on Butcher St.
The onetime carriage and buggy showroom building of the Wilhelm Schmidt carnage and buggy business * — more recently the contemporary Hearthside Antiques shop — will be preserved in the project.
The plaza partners have entered into contracts to purchase from Harvey Sc heel the white frame residence behind the Jahn building, the former carriage showroom on Seguin from Howard Hoer-ster and the adjoining yellow frame house from Charles Rawson.
Rawson and Hoerster, until recently, operated their individual antiques businesses under the same roof in the old showroom.
Hoerster said he will vacate the one-story brick building on or before Feb. 15 or when he has disposed of what remains of his inventory, whichever comes first. He has decided ifs time to abandon the hustle in the advent of his 80th birthday. He “retired” into antiquing 20 years ago.
High wi his agenda for enjoying life is acquiring a place on the Gulf Coast at Rockport for serious fishing.
Rawson has leased the yellow house from the new owners and moved his business in; he will perpetuate the Hearthside name Norwood said the carriage showroom exterior will be preseved and the interior renovated for business or professional occupancy.
Moved to other sites eventually will be the two frame houses and buildings on the back of the 220-foot lots.
Added to the site will be other commercial structures in the style of the Jahn and carriage buildings, said Norwood. Working on the project design is partner O’Neill of O’Neill A Perez, architects and planners, San Antonio.
INTO JAHN BLOG. — Two attorneys presently practicing in town have leased separate law offices in the renovated Jahn building. They are Steve Taylor and David Perkins Another main floor occupant will be Carlton Food Products, Inc., mvwng its executive and administrative offices.
The second-floor executive suites are available with services. Mark Eichstadt, professional engineer, will be officing there.
Also leasing in the Jahn Building will be Richard L. Hitz, President of George Allen Co., Inc.
CARRIAGE WORKS - Behind the yellow house on property for Jahn Plaza is a bam in which wheelwright Wilhelm Schmidt built the carnages and buggies he displayed in the brick building at 480 S. Seguin. The yellow frame house was his residence.
Later, his foster son, George Eikel-Schmidt and Ma wife converted the carriage showroom into their residence. Howard Hoerster bought the building from Laura Eikel-Schmidt Eibend in 1971.

remember the wheelwright as “Uncle Schmidt." Mary’s father Ernest Eikel, built a home on Casted St. property which backed up to the carnage works, and she remembers as a child seeing an old carriage still suspended on pulleys up in the barn rafters.

MISS TIMMERMANN - The remarkable Seven Timmennann Sisters of nearby Geronimo have created a monumental legacy of giving — energy, time and love — to their own and neighboring conununities — church, school and civic groups as well as individuals in need.
When one of the seven, Kstaiia, 86, left life recently, little Friedens Church out in the blackland fields could not acconunodate the several hundreds who came to pay their respects
The masses of people were asked to go from the cemetery to the Timinennann home which the two eldest, Tekla and Hulda, had been unable to leave. The oldest of the sisters is nearly 90; the youngest, 67,
Among those who had come to Geronimo from throughout Texas was Mrs. leon Jaworski, wife of the late Houston attorney whose father had served as Friedens pastor early in the century. The internationally noted lawyer always considered as home the Geronimo area where he spent part of his boyhood, she said.
Inundated with praise was the vocal soloist at the service, a Methodist iiunister f-oui Cuero. He is the Rev. Robert Alien, grandson of the sisters’ cousin, Keinhold 'Timmennann, who had lived "about a mile down the road.”
