Renovations underway on 1860s downtown limestone building

By Molly Moser

There are dozens of stone structures in Guttenberg, and one has just gotten a facelift. Andy Reimer, who grew up in a farmhouse built in 1912, has begun restoring the building at 316 S. 1st Street that formerly housed John’s TV Service. 

“There have been some surprises,” said Reimer of the renovations, “but the best surprise was the limestone.” One photograph (see inside) shows the building, labeled W. H. Scholz, with siding, and a 1910 photograph shows the building coated with the stucco that covered its exterior until June.
