Schroeder's Meat Market
Fritz Schroeder began his meat market business just across the bridge from Milan in a small building, which was against the bridge walls. Schroeder later moved it to Canal Street to the left of the old Masonic building. The old frame building that housed the Meat Market and a couple shoe stores was torn down, and the building that now houses Keillor’s Teddy Bear shop stands where those old businesses stood (at one time, the Fulton Pharmacy occupied this building). Barnhart, the butcher from Burton Porter’s “Old Canal Days” was based on Fritz Schroeder.
