The 5 Oldest Running Businesses in St. Cloud (Over 100 Years Old) [PHOTOS]
Businesses come and go. It takes generations of dedication to keep a business going for over 100 years, and we've got your list of those astonishingly old St. Cloud companies.
In a recent conversation with Steve at Stearns History Museum, I asked what the oldest St. Cloud businesses are, that are still running. It took a little archive digging, but he came up with what we could find is the oldest on record.
Here's the top 5 businesses that are the oldest and still running:
5. Daniel Funeral Home - 134 years in business
4. Miller Architects - 141 years in business (No photo available)
3. Williams Dingmann Funeral Home - 142 years in business
2. St. Cloud Times - 155 years in business
1. Sentinel Printing - 161 years in business (No photo available)
Steve at Stearns History Museum also sent me a gem of a photo that is notable. This was taken in 1892 during the construction of the College of St. Benedict in St. Joseph.
A big thanks to Steve at Stearns History Museum for help on the photos and working with me to dig up this list. They've got a spectacular amount of great information, records, photos and more, in regards to all the history of this area. I could spend everyday there!
