The Wambachs–Probstfield Family Friends

wambachs bar

In the spring of 1904, Matt Wambach and his brother-in-law Nick Zenk turned an old machine shop in Georgetown in the Palm Saloon.  From the looks of the place, most of the money went into the beautiful wooden bar.  The wooden bar from the Palm Saloon survived in a local basement until the Flood of 1997.  

The Wambachs are Clay County pioneers who have been close neighbors and friends of the Probstfields since the 1870s. Here we see the Palm Saloon in Georgetown, opened by Matt Wambach in 1904.
