Living history: Wasserman's Flowers & Gifts is a story about Muskegon's past—and future
Wasserman’s, receipts from flowers regularly purchased by lumber barons Charles Hackley and Thomas Hume, and many more details that give a glimpse as to what 137 years means in the life of a family, a store, and a city. “It was open through the Depression, the World Wars,” Angie says. “It’s hard to wrap your head around. Our everyday livelihood goes back that long into the history of the United States and the community. And so many things have changed. There’s a wow factor for me; that’s a lot of years.”Louis Wasserman, standing at right in the back, in his greenhouse located at Irwin and Terrace around the turn of the 20th century. The beginning: Dreams of Louis Wasserman Louis Wasserman was born in 1853 in Germany and was one of three million people who, prompted by low wages and a lack of employment opportunities, left the country between 1862 and 1890 in search of a better life abroad. The great-great grandfather of Angie and Troy, Louis came to the U.S. in 1872 and first settled in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, where he met and married Amelia. Together, they moved in 1874 to Muskegon, where Louis worked as a tailor while cultivating his passion during off hours: his garden. Encouraged by his wife to leave tailoring and pursue his dream of working with flowers, Louis built what’s believed to be Muskegon’s first greenhouse on the corner of Irwin Avenue and Terrace Street. As Louis grew and tended to the rows of plants, Amelia would sell the flowers that were quickly embraced by the city. Wasserman’s makes one of its first media appearances in a Muskegon Chronicle section titled “Local Events” published on May 21, 1886. In the sea of text that were newspapers in the 1800s, the Chronicle gives a rundown of a variety of events in the city, including the funeral for five-year-old Elsa Kanitz, H.B. Smith opening a new grocery store on Jackson Street, and frustrations over a blustery day. (“The South Wind has been enjoying the fun of kicking up a dust today, but he’s the only chap that enjoys it. Pedestrians have found it extremely disagreeable going about the streets collecting sawdust and splinters in their optics,” the newspaper writes.) In the midst of these details, the newspaper describes a welcome scene at Wasserman’s. “A large cactus plant in full bloom at Wasserman’s flower store presents a gorgeous and beautiful appearance,” the Chronicle writes in its one sentence dedicated to the store that day.A Muskegon Ch...
