Puerner Buildings/Brewery/Heilemann’s Ice Cream "Fort Community Credit Union"
Backstory and Context
The corner stores of the Bruenig building, a bar and barber shop, were razed along with the lower floors of the Puerner department store for the Fort Community Credit Union expansion in 2003. The corner store housed many taverns such as the Dickoff Saloon, Bienfang's Bar (40's), Multauf's Bar (50's-60's), Sparky's Bar ( 60's-70's) and the Corner Tap. The second store contained barbershops over the years run by Charles Lane (20's-50's), and Purl Dobson (40's-80's).
