Wirth’s Department Store was said to be the largest department store in Ozaukee County. This building was erected in 1870 and a large addition was built in about 1948. The store was operated by the third generation of the Wirth family. Village Furniture now occupies this building.
Besides shoes, dry goods and groceries, Wirth’s Department Store also sold appliances and farm implements. Edgar Wirth was in charge of the service department and is pictured at the left of other department employees.
