HISTORY: The buildings are leased to businesses which change frequently. The building at 112 S. Main was occupied in the 1950's by the Elite Cafe, owned and operated by Mr. & Mrs. Jackson Schmidt, Sr.. Next door was a "five & dime store"; at first Frank's Variety, then Winn's, and still later Bill's Dollar Store. Rittimann's Jewelers occupied 126 S. Main and was followed by the Optometrist, Dr. Mineer. After Dr. Mineer's untimely death in 1997, Dr. Stan Kremp, an optometrist from Kerrville followed. A short time later he sold this part of his practice to Dr. Joseph Arieta. The Boerne Star, published and printed by the Gammon and Jack Davis families, occupied 132 S. Main for many years. They were followed by the Boerne Printing Company in the 1980's. The building at 136 S. Main has been almost continuously occupied by auto supply businesses.
