130 South Main
Huning Dry Goods & Goebel Photograph Gallery

Circa 1855 - H.C. Easton

In the 1860s, A. R. Huning's Dry Goods store occupied the street level of this shop, and Goebel's Photograph Gallery occupied the second floor.  Rudolph Henry Goebel, a German immigrant, photographed St. Charles and her citizens from 1856 to 1916.

In 1888, Hubert Haching, another German immigrant, bought the building and opened a saloon.  Except for the years of Prohibition when Hachting's son Anton sold soft drinks, it has been a tavern ever since.
