Joseph's Department Store, Fremont, Ohio

The original Joseph’s Department Store in Fremont, Ohio was established in 1864 by Jacob Joseph.  After the death of Jacob, his sons, Barney and Isaac, successfully operated the store until 1929.  The three-story brick building on the Northeast corner of Front and Garrison Streets in Fremont, Ohio was then leased to the Danziger family of Columbus, Ohio in 1931. Louis Danziger, along with his associates, managed the department store for several decades, making it a fixture of the Fremont business community.This photograph, along with other Joseph's Department Store materials was donated by Nathan Danziger.

My Great-Grandfather, William Yeager, worked at Joseph's Department Store for many years. He worked in the floor coverings department, and was a carpet installer. I'd be interested in seeing records from Joseph's that showed his employment, if there are any available. Please contact me at
