A Texas Treasure Business Award from the Texas Historical Commission was presented to Weinheimer and Son, Inc., of Stonewall during a ceremony held on Thursday afternoon at the store.

The Texas Treasure Business Award program pays tribute to businesses that have provided employment opportunities and support to the state’s economy for 50 years or more.

Thursday’s program opened with a welcome by Brandon Weinheimer, president of the Stonewall Chamber of Commerce.

Offering remarks were Mark Wolfe, executive director of the Texas Historical Commission; Glen Treibs, president of the Gillespie County Historical Commission, and Miller.

Wolfe pointed out that the Texas Legislature created the Texas Treasure Business Award in 2005, and “this is the type of program we should celebrate every day.”
