The current building at 507 N. Main St. stands in the same spot the original building stood. In 1914, the first building was moved back toward the Miami and Erie Canal to make room for the new building, which would’ve been 100 years old in 2014.
In the beginning, the firm was named Delphos Marble & Granite Works until Scherger’s oldest son John joined the company in 1892. The name was changed to C. Scherger & Son. In 1905, the name was changed again to C. Scherger & Sons with the addition of Scherger’s younger sons Barney, William and Joseph. When Constantine died in 1917, the company was changed to C. Scherger’s Sons. For 96 years, C. Scherger Monument Co. was a family business.
