"Never give up on a dream because of the time it takes to accomplish it."

The summer of 2012 I purchased the Hub City Bakery building located at 25 South Frederick. I had always wanted to renovate a main street building so it was time to fulfill the dream. My mother had passed away in April of that year so I also did this in her honor. Oelwein was her home for most of her 87 years. She loved this town. I also was born and raised here. It is home. I have seen many changes here in my lifetime as many longtime residents have. I wanted to do my little part to bring some life back into this wonderful old building with so much hidden character. Built in 1922, this building is over 9 decades old. Oh if these walls could talk. With the help of a very supportive husband and family, friends, and some talented professionals the dream has become a reality after more than two years of “blood, sweat, and tears”. Our first project was to build an office for our son on the second level. Then we moved to the lower level which is now a retail shop featuring a wide range of new, retro and vintage items. Therefore it has been named “Decades”, representing the many decades of items we will feature.

Oelwein was named "Hub City" because of the rail lines coming into town and the repair shops located there.
