Overview Looking Northeast

The Dubuque Casket Company was founded in 1892 by Frank A. Beiler and once ranked 21st in sales in the United States. Sadly, the company died (so to speak) in 1988 and the building housed a truck and auto parts business. It was repurposed for use as an apartment building in 2009.
