March 14, 1966:  Work has started on the demolition of St. Henry’s Hall at North Third and Cole Streets to make way for a new parsonage and administration building, along with three garages, to serve the pastor and two curates of the parish.  Also to be demolished is the present parsonage at 412 North Fourth Street.  The Very Rev. A. J. Herrmann, pastor, and the curates, the Rev. David H. Runde and the Rev. Thomas P. Baier, will move to the old Leo Ruesch residence at 310 North Water Street shortly after Easter and will occupy that residence until the new parsonage is completed.


June 20, 1966:  A new administration-rectory building is being constructed for St. Henry’s Catholic congregation in Watertown. The contemporary-classical two story building is being erected at North Fourth and Cole Streets, occupying the sites of the old rectory and what was for many years St. Henry’s  Hall. It will be of brick veneer, with pitched roof. It will provide living quarters for the three priests who serve the parish, offices and waiting rooms. In the basement an all-purpose room will be built for lay participation. It will be provided with a public entrance and a kitchen. On the first floor, there will be a garden court with sliding door to provide the priests garden privacy. The second floor will include guest rooms, the pastor’s suite and the housekeeper’s apartment. Architects of the building are Brielmaier, Sherer and Sherer of Milwaukee. General construction contracts have been awarded to Riedl Brothers.

From January 1, 1954 when Riedl Brothers began, to December 31, 1982 when they retired and ended Riedl Brothers, they built 194 houses, plus additions, remodeling, garages, etc.  They must have done hundreds of smaller jobs of maybe one hour to twenty hours, as they seldom turned down work, unless the people could not wait.
