"Most of the [Kaukauna commercial] buildings were constructed by owners or local contractors. Commercial buildings often displayed the names of these owners as well as the dates of construction.

"The Lindauer-Rupert Block ("Lindauer" appears on the building) 137-141 E. Second St., was built in 1895 by Luther Lindauer and his partner Rupert. Lindauer concomitantly owned the Kaukauna Stone Company and the Kaukauna Brick Yard. Materials from these places were used to construct the building."
