Fred and Theresa Landwehr arrived here in 1908 with seven children, a horse named Lucy and a St. Bernard. East McCarty Street did not exist. The rest is history.
A dairy on Ash Street where Prison Brews is now located. A farm transformed into three hundred home sites. Careers at Central Bank and the Attorney General's Office. A young mother victim of the 1918 Great Infuenza. The youngest son lost in a war against his father's home county.
