GERMAN IMMIGRANTS, LOVE OF BLOOMS NURTURE TRADITION OF FLORAL INDUSTRY
A large population of German immigrants and a European love for flowers in the home may have combined to produce a tradition of an active floral industry in Des Peres.
By the turn of the century, 315,000 square feet of greenhouses were growing flowers within the current city limits, according to "A History of Des Peres" compiled by Carl F. Stolwyk and Florence G. Stolwyk. Among the greenhouses were:
William August Meier Greenhouses - Meier, the first florist in Des Peres, started a truck farm in 1877 on Manchester Road east of Lockett Lane. He also grew field flowers. In 1904 he constructed the first greenhouses in Des Peres.
In September, 1947, Harold and Herbert Ahner acquired the greenhouses. They operate today as Ahner's Florist and Greenhouses.
William J. Meier Greenhouses - The eldest son of William August Meier bought land near his father's property and started his greenhouses in 1906 on eight acres.
Charles Meier Greenhouses - William August Meier's youngest son built his home and greenhouses near his brother's. After the 1904 World's Fair, Charles Meier bought two greenhouses that had been in the horticulture exhibit and moved them to his property. These greenhouses were bought by John and George Tomasovic, who grew prize-winning carnations. The wholesale business operates today as John L. Tom Sr. Florist Inc.
Ellebrecht-Eime Greenhouse - Louis Ellebrecht followed the Meiers in the floral business. Later Gottlieb Eime bought the business. Eime retired in 1952 and sold part of the property for the development of the Harwood Plaza Shopping Center.
Goebel Greenhouses - Philip J. Goebel began a florist business just after the turn of the century. He became one of the largest growers in the state.t He developed and patented the brilliant red carnation "Fire Chief." His property was sold in 1960, and the Schnucks store
at Manchester near Lindemann Road now sits on the site.
Joseph Deutschmann Greenhouses - Joseph Deutschmann went into the wholesale floral business when his father gave him five acres and two greenhouses in the 11000 block of Manchester Road in 1911.
George F. Deutschmann Greenhouses - He built three greenhouses on land his father gave him from the original Deutschmann farm. Family members joined him, and the business grew to 25 greenhouses with more than 100,000 square feet under glass. Family members continue the business today.
Wissman Greenhouses - Alvin Wissman worked for George Deutschmann and sold most of what he grew to the Deutschmanns from 1947 to 1957. His business was near Manchester and Grupp roads.
Schlegel Greenhouse - Ernest Schlegel also worked for the Deutschmanns. He operated a greenhouse and several cold frames on Manchester Road near Grupp road.
Eckelmann Greenhouses - William Eckelmann bought 13 acres of the Borcherding Estate off Ballas Road just north of Manchester. Eckelmann started with his speciality, asparagus. In 1981, he built his first greenhouses on Eckelmann Lane. The home and greenhouses were later razed for part of Berkley Manor subdivision. The Jost family continues the business today.

On February 22, 1978, Charles and Augusta Frank, along with Lorence and Clara Schulte, were involved in a car accident on Route B (Wardsville Road) with a car driven by Benny Stephen Happe, aged 15 years. He was driving his father's truck with his permission, but without a license. Immediately after the accident, Benny left the scene on foot, went to a nearby home and called his father. He claimed that an unknown vehicle in front of him braked suddenly and he swerved to avoid striking that car. However, Charles stated that Benny was passing the unknown vehicle and tried to swerve back into his own lane, but because of the snow, skidded into the path of Charles's car. Lorence was injured the most severely, with a fractured hip and head injuries. After surgery, he recuperated for months. Clara was slightly injured and hospitalized. Augusta was riding in the back seat and received a gash on her forehead, along with a puncture wound on her thigh, when a handle on Lorence's wheelchair pierced her skin and travelled in a tunnel- like wound. She was also hospitalized for several days. Charles was injured, but was seeking his own medical treatment. His knee was jammed into the ignition key, breaking it. And his chest impacted the steering wheel so hard it bent and cracked. He later had a chest x-ray because his chest was so painful.34
Augusta was listed in Charles Joseph Frank's obituary as surviving.35,36
