Louis Kleehammer (1855-1916) developed this property where John Kleehammer operated a saloon around 1900. Subsequent to it's saloon days, this building was used as Christie's Funeral Home.
Before Kleehammer's Saloon was built, this corner was home to the Red Ribbon Hall. Local townspeople came to the hall for dancing, partying, watching shows and plays. It was also a meeting place for local Masonic groups.
It was demolished in 1857, 43 years before Kleehammer's was built.
