Wiechmann, Louis (9 February 1871 – 19??)
LOUIS WIECHMANN who is one of the old hardware men of Wausau, Wisconsin, with which business he has been identified here for twenty-three consecutive years, occupies commodious quarters and owns his building at No. in Washington Street. He was born at Algona, Wisconsin, February 9, 1871, and is a son of Adolph and Johanna Wiechmann. The father was a contractor and builder and in 1875 moved with his family to Lacrosse, Wisconsin, in 1881 came to Wausau, and in 1890 established the hardware business here under the firm style of A. Wiechmann & Son, which remained until the retirement of the elder partner in 1905, his death following on November 5, 1911.
Louis Wiechmann was ten years old when his parents came to Wausau, where he attended school and afterward for some five years or more, was in the employ of the Montgomery Hardware Company. In 1890 he became his father's partner in business and has continued alone since his father's retirement, the firm, in 1900 having purchased the valuable business block now occupied. Mr. Wiechmann is well known over Marathon County as a reliable dealer and honorable business man and his long experience has well fitted him to supply the hardware most in demand in this section and his patrons often come from far distant parts of the county as they have done for over twenty years.
In 1903 Mr. Wiechmann was married to Miss Emma Wegner, of Wausau, Wisconsin, and they have two children: Walter and Gertrude. He is a member of Zion Church.
