This plate recalls the livery stables, blacksmith and harness shops, wagon manufacturers. The background of the entire design is a wagon wheel bearing the name Hauber Wagon Works. Started by Sebastian Hauber in 1856, and later it was carried on by his descendants. This prominent concern stood where The St. Marys Home Health Care stands today. All kinds of farm and delivery wagons ad town carriages were built here as were sleds and cutters. Blacksmithing, horseshoeing, and eventually auto repair and Studebaker sales were all part of the Hauber business. A full description of the plate can be found ( and purchased) in the book Historical Society Plates of St. Marys and Benzinger TWP. which can be found at the local historical Society.
