Story by Ted Wendeln

My grandfather, Anton Bernard Wendeln, worked at Wise Sawmill in Ft Loramie from the early 1900s until his death in 1920. He lived in Minster at the corner of N. Main St and 7th St. across from Hausfeld Motors. The Interurban ran right in front of the house. He built a four wheeled bicycle with wheels that would fit on the Interurban tracks. He would ride this bicycle down the track every day to go to work at Wise's. This story was told to us kids by my father, Bernard Wendeln, and his brothers, often when we were growing up.
