Fat Louie's and Designworks - #1415 & #1411

Egg Harbor Past and Present Through The Eyes Of A Big Brown Dog.....

Fat Louie's Olive Oil, Hotdogs and Ice Cream; and Nature Works and Designworks was John Bertschinger's home, lumber yard and feed mill.

After becoming disenchanted with the salon business at the Harbor Inn, John sold it in 1912 and purchased the home of Dr. Eames across the highway. John developed a successful lumber and feed business with his sons Arthur and Wilbur. He also operated the Minnie R. and Belle Culvert, two boats transporting supplies to and from Marinette and Menominee, MI. In 1922, with his brother Paul, John built the Alpine Resort. The mill operated until 1962 when it was purchased by Helen and Harold Dannhausen which they developed into Stage Coach Junction. The barns are now Nature Works, and John's home is now Fat Louie's Olive Oil and Hotdogs and Ice Cream. The mill later became the Granary Shops and is now Designworks.
