Immigrating to the United States from Germany in 1872, Otto Koehler built his house in 1901 with an unobstructed view of the city and his City Brewery, now Pearly Brewery, where "he could determine whether his employees were hard at work by the color of the smoke issuing from the brewery's stacks," according to the Koehler Cultural Center Web page
