La Crosse in La Crosse County, Wisconsin — The American Midwest (Great Lakes)
Original Home Built By Gottlieb and Johanna Heileman
As was the custom of the day, Heileman located the new home as closely as possible to the Brewery which he had founded.
The German craftsmen who had just completed work on the old Saint Joseph's Cathedral (which was at that time an ethnic German Parish) are said to have been employed in its building.
The architecture is similar to that of substantial homes which the Heilemans had admired in their native Württemberg.
