Zender, Nicholas H. (12 September 1861 19??)


NICHOLAS H. ZENDER, proprietor of the Crystal Hotel, at Wausau, situated on Third street, directly opposite the Marathon County Court House, an admirable location, has been in the hotel business here for ten years and his reputation as a host extends all over this section. He was born at New Riegel, Seneca county, O., September 12, 1861.  


Nicholas H. Zender was reared and educated in Ohio and when he came West in 1885, he remained a resident of Chicago, Illinois, until November 20, 1886, when he came to Wisconsin and has been a resident of Wausau ever since. For about sixteen years he was in the retail liquor business, after which he purchased the Crystal Hotel which he has made one of the leading hostelries of the city. It is a commodious brick structure, equipped with electric lights and steam heat, with baths and other conveniences, the same applying to the annex, in which there is provision for the entertaining of those guests who prefer buffet privileges. He conducts here also a cigar stand, billiard parlor and an excellent lunch room, the hotel proper being operated on the European plan. In every way possible Mr. Zender contributes to the comfort of the traveling public and his house is generally full of guests.


Mr. Zender belongs to the Odd Fellows, Eagles, and to the Elks. In politics he has his own opinions but for business reasons is not active. He is unmarried.
