Schott’s Model Market


Schott’s Model Market was built in the 1937. They served Devine as the go-to grocery and dry goods store.

Today, Marken operates on the right third of the building.

When we first got into the space, its bright blue floors and 8-foot drop ceiling were hiding some of the character of the building.

So we removed the drop ceiling, exposing the metal I-beams and some of the original wooden rafters. We even repurposed some of the wood on our feature wall, as well as created a bar top work station in the hall displaying some of its 10-foot beauty.

We love uncovering the history of Devine, Texas and have shared some of our favorite photos and newspaper ads from that time period on the walls at Marken.
