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.
