The picture above right is as the building looked in 1999, above center in 2003. Facility originally built in the 1880s by Adam Diefenthaeler and Phillip Duerrwaechter. In a 1942 article in the Milwaukee Journal newspaper, it stated the Duerrwaechter Hardware and Lumber Yard had been offering service for 70 years (1872).
In Russell Zimmermann's book,
"This large building complex began, in 1885, with what is now the center section on the Main Street front. It was used as a general store and saloon. About 1892 the eastern section was bult and for years was occupied by the Germantown State Bank. The western addition came in 1924. The CCB structure had elliptical-arched windows which have been squared off; there is an unusual tower at the rear with an ogee mansard roof."
