Reibel House
115 East Market Street
New Albany, IN 47150

Listing Description:
As early as 1859, Joseph H. Reibel was running a saloon and boarding house on East Market Street. This building, constructed in 1887, replaced a two-story structure that he had been using for his business and residence since 1865. Mr. Reibel died in June 1888, and by the following December the business had been sold and the building leased to a Mr. Byerly from Louisville. There were several other proprietors of the hotel over the next five years, but the current building was used as a hotel for less than ten years. In June 1906, the Reibel family sold the building for $4000 to Daniel Bader. The structure has seen numerous tenants - including several saloons - over time, including Harmeling Bros. Restaurant in the 1920s (also a front for a bootlegging operation during Prohibition), and Williams Bakery from 1937 to the mid-1960s. The building was carefully restored in the early 2000s by the current owner.
