In early November, Seth Wasserstrom (Project Team Manager, DCS and 4th generation Wasserstrom family member), travelled to Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania. While in Wilkes-Barre, Seth visited 164 North Canal Street. This is where founder Nathan Wasserstrom and his wife Rebecca lived with three of their eventual twelve children. Nathan and Rebecca lived in Wilkes-Barre in 1901 for only a year, before moving to Columbus in 1902, the same year Wasserstrom as a company was founded.
Unfortunately, the original homestead is no longer standing. And, alas, no photos have been found that show the original house. But family records note the location that Seth Wasserstrom was able to find.
Please enjoy some of Seth’s pictures taken that day, showing where Nathan & Rebecca Wasserstrom’s home once stood.
