Overview

This building is a two-story warehouse, which as the Germania in its good days. It contained a barroom, a restaurant, a billiards room, meeting rooms, and a bowling alley. Beer flowed freely and food was appropriately priced; lunch, the main meal for Germans, could be had for fifteen cents.
The Germania was a place where local organizations held their meetings. It was here that the Allgemeine Arbeiterfest held previews for its yearly gala. The 1871 program featured music-An der Schönen Blauen Donau-recitals, tableaux-vivant, and speeches of course, and the premiere for a local dissident's course and the premiere of a local dissident's one-act play.
