Charles Fleischmann immigrated from Vienna in 1868 and settled in Cincinnati. In that year he sold the first cake of fresh yeast used in America. In 1870 he organized the Gaff-Fleischmann Company which began in Riverside, Ohio. The first crude yeast plant burned down in 1871. After it was rebuilt the yeast was wrapped in foil. In the early 1880's Mr. Fleischmann took over the Gaff interests and changed the name of the firm to Fleischmann Company. Charles died in 1897. In 1905 the company reorganized under Julius Fleischmann. For more information on the Fleischmann Company please visit: American Memory Price: $8.00 + shipping
