The Today & Yesterday Building
OWN A PIECE OF HISTORY IN DOWNTOWN BRENHAM. The Today & Yesterday Building was originally 3 stories when it was constructed in 1872. It went on to house The Brenham Grand Opera on the second & third floors and Alex Simon's General Mercantile Store on the first. Restored in 1994 by the current owner, the Building has 14' 9" ceilings downstairs with nine, 10' 2" arched windows facing Alamo Street. A stunning 16 bulb, 4' 6" x 5' chandelier is showcased in the center of the building. The walls have exposed red brick arches and the floor is stained concrete. There is a private storage area with bathroom and office.

Custom shades line the windows, but you'll want to open them in the evening to enjoy your nearly 360 degree view of Downtown Brenham, especially at Christmastime when all of Downtown is festively lit up for the season. The Today & Yesterday Building is also equipped with a state-of-the-art, remote operated security system that includes 3 cameras upstairs, 3 cameras downstairs and 2 cameras outside, as well as monitors and direct lines to the fire & police departments. Outside, Belle's Alley runs directly along the west side of the building. Follow it south a few paces and end up in Toubin Park, the location of Brenham's Historic Cistern built around 1880 after the Burning of Brenham in 1878. When it comes to retail, everyone knows it's all about location, location, location. 101 W. Alamo St. is located right in the heart of Historic Downtown Brenham's busiest foot-traffic area. Within walking distance of the Washington County Courthouse, Funky Art Cafe, Must Be Heaven, Yumm! and several other Downtown shops & stops, you'll find plenty to do, and friendly neighbors.
