The Effingham County Museum will be presenting the fourth in its annual series of historical presentations on Thursday, February 11 at 7:00pm. Rick Siemer will be the speaker telling about the history of Siemer Milling Company. The story will take the audience back to the village of Teutopolis nearly 134 years ago, when the company opened for business as “Hope Mills, Uptmor & Seimer, Proprietors.” The name was later changed in 1906 to Siemer Milling Company.
Siemer will talk about the changes in the business through the twentieth century and into the twenty-first. Those who attend will learn about the leadership and expansion of the operation, both in Effingham County and out of state.
As the company’s website states: “(The company) has realized success to date because of the commitment of many fine people and their sincere desire to do a good job and deliver a worthwhile product.” By the end of the presentation, the audience will realize the truth of that statement as evidenced by the Siemer Milling Company’s history.
The historical presentation series at the Effingham County Museum will have its final presentation on this current run on March 10th.
