Baxter Springs Historic Walking Tour

Henry and Louisa Ohlen purchased this property in February 1878 and opened Ohlen's Restaurant and Bakery. Among their offerings were ice cream and oysters which were advertised "in their proper seasons." The Ohlen's [sic] also offered a day boarding house so those who wished could "freshen up" before their meal. The restaurant was also known as Delmonico's.

In the fall of 1889, the Ohlen's [sic] tore down their frame restaurant and constructed the present brick building in an effort to "modernize." The grand opening was held in January 1890. The Ohlen's [sic] sold their business in 1914 after 36 years, bringing an end to one of the favorite eating spots of early-day Baxter Springs.
