Originally this building was a wagon and buggy manufacturing establishment. By the turn of the century it housed a funeral home and furniture store. It was later sold to the Specht family who continued the business. After Erwin Lambert bought the business he built a new funeral home and the building has housed several different businesses since then.
The marker is affixed to the facade of a building accessible from eastbound East Main Street, just west of its intersection with Rockway Street, at or near 322 East Main Street, Mishicot, Wisconsin 54228.

The marker is located in Mishicot, Wisconsin.

I had no idea this marker was here. My great grandfather August Specht owned that business. I will have to come check it out one of these days.

Thank you for your comment, Steve! Very nice to hear from a Specht family member. Be sure to stop by the Mishicot Historical Museum and Research Center when you come to visit. I'll bet they'll have more information about your great-grandfather August Specht. This marker is one in a series placed by the Museum, a very nice way to learn the history of this charming Village: http://www.mishicothistoricalmuseum.org/p/our-historical-markers.html
