ADDITIONAL INFORMATION
From George Hall's History of Oconto, 1969. "It was from upstairs in this building, where the Turner Verein was holding a dance, that Louis Nohr descended to the street and fired several wild shots at a group trying to crash the affair. One of the shots struck and killed a bystander [Joseph Ruelle]. Nohr had a butcher shop on the first floor. Later, the building was the blacksmith shop of Albert Franks. It was razed last year." Nohr was chased down and lynched by an angry mob after the shooting.
