Columbus in Franklin County, Ohio — The American Midwest (Great Lakes)
Historic German Village
Lorenzo and Barbara Aumiller built the original structure after purchasing this lot in 1858 from C. F. Jaeger. In 1890, the building was purchased by noted Columbus brewer Nicholas Schlee who bequeathed the home to his daughter, Amalie A. Deckebach, upon his death in 1914.
Schlee, then owner of the Bavarian Brewery, rented the building for use as a hardware store to German immigrant Adam Reuss. Walter George Reuss purchased the building in 1923, continuing as proprietor of A. Reuss & Son. It remained in the Reuss family through the late 1950s.
