Mr. Johnson came to Plattsmouth

Infant city, and could boast of but
one or two brick buildings. For
years he and his brother, J. F. John

the carpenter work which was done
in Plattsmouth, and when the frame
buildings along Main street were be
ing replaced with bricks, this firm
placed the fronts in the greater part
of the buildings. Mr. Johnson has
watched the city grow from a town
of wooden store buildings to one of
brick and stone. The Fitzgerald
