August Second Saturday with TH Landmarks

  • 13 Aug 2011
  • 9:00 AM - 10:30 AM
  • Ehrmann Building (now known as GLIDDEN’S FURNITURE)

He liked to witness life as it passed before him and was a discerning observer.        He couldn’t make a living even though he had published six books in 10 years, so he became a lawyer and was Vigo County’s deputy prosecutor. Not eager to continue that life he was looking for something else.  In the men’s work clothing factory founded by his brothers Emil and Albert in 1888, Max Ehrmann became the credit manager and spent his extra time writing poetry and essays. The business thrived and soon the Erhmann Building came into being at 929-933 Wabash at the turn of the century.  The business thrived into one of the “Big Three” of Terre Haute’s clothing manufacturers but in 1913 and event took place that shocked the community when Emil Ehrmann, president of Ehrmann Manufacturing Co., was indicted for a murder that took place in front of the building.

Join us as we take a tour of the Ehrmann Building (now known as GLIDDEN’S FURNITURE) and learn more about one of Terre Haute’s pioneer landmarks on Saturday, August 13 at 9:00 AM – 10:30 AM.
