Scheuer's meat market circa 1922
RiverEdge Galleries 2006
The following excerpt is from the Milwaukee Journal.
"Elsewhere in the big sunlit room an antiquated bookkeeping machine reveals, with a punch and a wheeze,
carbon copies of sales issued to customers years ago,
It's all part of a transformation that has seen a 76-year-old meat market become a dual showcase for arts and
antiques called RiverEdge Galleries.
Jointly operated [from 1984-89] by Christopher Baugniet, a potter and Patrick Farrell, a painter, the dual
venture takes advantage of the two story construction of the venerable frame building that once dispensed
cold cuts and now brings culture to this tiny northeastern Wisconsin community.
Downstairs, at 432 East Main Street is the antiques display, planned to fit naturally into the unaltered milieu of
the early 20th century meat market.
Upstairs, at 432 East Main Street, is a pin-neat, oak-trimmed apartment that serves as a display area for the
[Fine Arts Gallery], highlighting an array of original objects by Midwestern [and National] artists."
