The home of the Washington Platform Saloon & Restaurant in downtown
 Cincinnati was built in 1860. Originally established as The Johan Armleder
 Wine and Lager Beer Saloon, the building also housed several boarders.
 Johan Armleder, an immigrant from Wurttenberg, Germany, operated
 the saloon until his death in 1872. The saloon was a lucrative business, supported by the heavy
 population of small industries and residences surrounding the
 Miami-Erie Canal. The Canal linked Cincinnati to Lake Erie, and
 its course ran the path of what is now Central Parkway. The
 influx of German immigrants to the area, in the 1850’s and
 1860’s, helped to establish the enterprise as a favorite
 gathering place.
