February 17, 2018: History Club Examines Jenifer Street Businesses

Posted by eastsidehistorymadison on December 31, 2017

The East Side History Club will meet to discuss the Jenifer-Division streets commercial district.

Do you remember these businesses?

  • Hi-Lo Market (now Jenifer Street Market)
  • Community Laundry
  • U-Select-It vending machines (made by the Coan Manufacturing Co.)
  • Capital Plating and Machine / Water softener Company (now the site of a new apartment building?)

Ann Waidelich and Don Ross will lead a conversation about these and other businesses and homes in the area.

The East Side History Club meets Saturday, February 17, 1-3 p.m., Goodman Community Center, 149 Waubesa Street. The Club continues to look for co-leaders and new group partners to carry the club forward. Please join us at the February meeting and share your ideas or suggestions.
