    This firm was organized in 1890 by Henry B. Lotz and his brother Benjamin. They learned to make shoes by hand from their father, Bernhardt Lotz, who was a well known shoemaker. Henry passed away in 1931 and Ben continued the business until 1937 when he retired. According to the city directories the Lotz name remained on the building until 1946 when Edwin Schultz had a shoe store there. He continued in the business until 1983. There have been other businesses in the building since then for short periods. It now houses the "Subway" sandwich shop. less
