From the Historic Third Ward

“George Ziegler & Company commissioned H.P. Schnetzky in 1890 to design the headquarters for its candy manufacturing operation. Ziegler’s specialties were mint lozenges, gum drops, rock candy, and chocolate cream drops, and in 1894 the firm became the first in the state to produce marshmallows. Although a portion of the structure was demolished, Miller-Armstrong Costume Service occupied what remained of the original building until 2001. In 2001, the building was completely renovated and now houses Rustico, a restaurant on the first floor; on the upper floors, it houses offices.”

The restaurant Rustico is located on the first floor. The building shares walls with 221 N. Water St. and 225 N. Water St.
