1907 Newspaper Article on N.S. Baumgartner, South Pittsburg,Marion Co,TN

N.S. BAUMGARTNER - House Builder and Proprietor of Our Local Ice Manufacturing Plant.
Mr. N.S. Baumgartner was born in Switzerland in 1864 and came to America with his parents when but four years old. The family first settled in Pennsylvania, but the subject of this sketch is an adopted Tennessean of twenty years' standing. For a number of years he has been engaged in the meat market and general merchandising business, from which lines he recently withdrew. About one year ago he purchased our local ice manufacturing plant, which he is overhauling, improving, and which will command the greater part of his attention this summer. He will afford the people of South Pittsburg free city delivery and ship to the trade into adjacent territory.
Mr. Baumgartner owns valuable business and residence property and has just completed the construction of a three-store roomed, two storied brick business block on Cedar street, on the second floor of which is found a new, modern and attractive skating rink, 50 x 90 feet in floor dimensions.
Mr. Baumgartner has served in City Council, on local School Board, and is one of our most useful citizens.
--- the South Pittsburg Hustler,Friday,May 31,1907
