    Looking for information about Alex Walbart Florist

    Molly Kramer Newbie

      I am the daughter of the fourth generation owner of our family business in St Louis, MO - Alex Waldbart Florist has been in operation since 1872. It was started by my great, great grandfather (Alexander Waldbart) when he came to the United States from Germany. He passed it on to his sons Eugene J., Alexander F., and Leo A. (Lee Sr.) as A. Waldbart and Sons Florist and Nursery. The business was located at the southwest corner of Hamilton and Horton in St. Louis Missouri. Leo A (Lee Sr.) passed the florist to my grandfather Lee A. Waldbart Jr. and the name of the florist is now Alex Waldbart Florist. I am looking to get some information about the origins of the business, any pictures, articles, or stories. I know Alexander Sr was involved in the Society of American Florists, but I am not sure of the extent. I am trying to put together something about our history for the 150th anniversary of business this year. Any and all help is welcomed! Thanks in Advance!
