1984:  Weirath Restaurant.  "Harry Weirath first came to Wadsworth in 1944 to manage the Isaly's Store which had been opened in 1934, in the former Klein's Clothing room.  In 1959, he bought the store, and when Isaly's products were no longer available, he put his own name on the business.  For about 12 years, "the breakfast club" (a regular group of business and professional men) have served the other customers, one day a year.  This year's crew included, from left:  John Hanna, Harry Weirath, Duane Kreider, Pete Giacomo, Bruce Clevidence, Sam Paulo, and Dick Wheatley."
