Heimann, Edward (15 December 1855 - 19??)
Edward Heimann, proprietor of the Washington Hotel at Wausau a well appointed hostelry which Mr. Heimann erected in 1888 and still owns, has made this city his home for thirty-nine years. He was born in Germany, December 15, 1855, and was sixteen years old when he left his native land for America, landing at New Orleans, La., in 1872, in the fall of the same year reaching Marathon County, Wis.
For several years after coming to Marathon County Mr. Heimann worked in the woods after which, in 1874, he came to Wausau, found steady employment and saved his money and in 1886 started for himself in the saloon business. In 1888 he erected the Washington Hotel and operated the same for a number of years then rented it and retired from the business, taking up his residence in his beautiful home which stands on Grand Avenue. Here he has almost three acres of land and he has taken a great deal of enjoyment in experimenting in the growing of different plants and has won considerable reputation on account of his success with tobacco, being the only planter in the county to raise it with profit. In the summer of 1912 Mr. Heimann again took charge of his hotel and found the public glad to see him once more its genial host.
In 1886 Mr. Heimann was married to Miss Minnie Krueger, who was born in Germany and was three years old when her parents, Capt. William Krueger and wife, brought her to Wausau. Mrs. Krueger survives but Captain Krueger, who was captain of the German Veteran Association, died in 1893, age fifty-five years. Mr. and Mrs. Heimann have three surviving children: Meta, Edward and Arthur. Those deceased were: William, who was accidentally killed by the kick of a horse when aged about six years; Olga, who died when aged three months; Freda, who died at the age of six months; Lilly, who lived to the age of eighteen months; and Helen, whose short life span was one year and eight months. Mr. Heimann is a member of the fraternal and social organization known as The Druids.
