George or Rose Marie,
The following exerpt was taken from page 10 of the following website:
The Walter Freund Bread Company building (Property #58), located at 900 S.
Taylor Avenue, is significant under criterion A, as a building associated
with events that have made a significant contribution to the broad patterns
of our history (National Register 1995: Part II). The Walter Freund Bread
Company was a direct descendant of the Freund Baking Company, established by
Moritz and Jetta Freund in 1856. Famous throughout St. Louis for Bohemian
rye bread, the Freund Bakery was originally located at 913 Soulard Street.
After maximizing their facilities in Soulard, the bakery, as the Walter
Freund Bread Company, built the extant building and moved to the new
facility in 1921. The company again changed its name in 1956 to the Freund
Bread Company. Under this name, the company remained at the corner of Taylor
and Chouteau Avenues until 1971. During that year, the bakery merged and
became known as American Baking (Freund Division). American Baking remained
at the location until 1988. The buildings continued use as a bakery for an
uninterrupted 50 years and its association with the Freund Bread Company
support its nomination to the NRHP.
