1633-1635 Main Street
John C. Seegers debuted this Italianate style building in 1873 as a saloon and brewery. During the 1870s and 1880s, the property served as a meeting place for several German organizations, including the Schuetzen Verein and Freundschaftsbund, shooting and friendship societies. Seegers' son-in-law, Christopher C. Habenicht, joined the business sometime in the 1870s, and in 1892 opened C.C. Habenicht Bottle Works on the 1100 block of Taylor Street. In 1937, an Art-Deco inspired renovation altered the building’s original appearance. That modern treatment was removed in 2015 during the building’s adaptive use as Lula Drake Wine Parlor and the Pastor’s Study, a project that received an Historic Columbia preservation award in 2018.
