Celebrating Over 80 Years of Service

Starting a business in the 1930’s could have been viewed as risky, but Arthur Baue and his partner Clarence Hackmann saw it differently. They settled in St. Charles and began a legacy of service to others. This legacy continues today with Lisa Baue and her son John Baue Devaney.
