A Little HistoryGroceries, cotton and spirits. Schleider's (founded as J. Schleder's Sons Co.) opened its doors as a general store that handled groceries and dry goods. It also operated a cotton warehouse and provided a wagon yard where farmers unharnessed their teams to feed and rest while they shopped, and a saloon to serve locals and passengers waiting for trains at the passenger depot across the street. Prohibition ended the saloon operation and helped redefine Schleider's as a home furnishings store.
Photography, quicksand and fallout shelter. Our loading docks and the side rail that runs alongside the store are popular with photographers and film crews who have used the store's exterior as a backdrop for vintage sets, bridal photo shoots and more.
Beyond our historic status and the store's well-preserved architecture, the store has a curious geologic base on quicksand! Faced with this dilemma as the basement was being dug, our builders designed a "floating" basement underpinned by a wide apron that extends beyond the building's visible footprint.
Here's something most people don't know: During the Cold War Era (1950s - 1960s) Schleider Furniture's basement was an official fallout shelter for the City of Brenham!
