On this site a wood frame business was built by Louis Nuschke. A grand store for it's time, one could purchase anything from furniture, carpet, wall paper, hand painted china and jewelry as well as hardware items. When the dam broke in 1911 the Nuschke Store was swept away. Mr. Nuschke quickly rebuilt a new store of brick. Louis owned and operated his business until his death in 1923 when son Walter took over. In 1958 Robert Cooney purchased the business and operated it until 1969 when the old building was demolished to make room for Austin's new Main Street bridge.
