A LITTLE HISTORY OF THE PROPERTY Townlot 180, on the corner of Lincoln Street and Main Street (then known as Garten Street and San Saba Street) was first known in 1852 as the Old School House Lot of the German Emigration Company. The property passed thru several owners until in 1867 when the title passed to Heinrich Wilke who was a wheelwright. In 1878 Charles F. Priess purchased the property and began construction of a large two-story limestone building with a basement, which was completed in 1883. The Priesses had a general merchandise and hardware store on the ground floor and lived upstairs. The Priesses owned the property until 1917. In 1919 Dr. Victor Keidel bought the property from Ernst Herbort and Alfred Petsch. In 1937 Victor and his son, Albert, began construction on a new hospital by adding a two-story wing. The new hospital was dedicated on July 31, 1938. It was called the Keidel Memorial Hospital. Dr. J. Hardin Perry, Dr. Keidel’s son in law also practiced here. Dr. Keidel passed away in 1952. Dr. Perry purchased full ownership of the property in 1960 and it remains in the Perry family. Today the building is home to Perry and Associates(second story), Der Kuchen Laden(first floor), and Rathskeller Restaurant(basement). * Rathskeller - In Old Germany a rathskeller was the basement of the Town Hall (Rathaus), usually used as a restaurant or a tavern that sold beer.
