    Hi Lynette,

    My name is Jacqueline Kretchmer and I am the new owner of the The Pinc Lady in Eureka at 2:02 M Street. Also our Instagram is @thePincLady.

    Currently we are working with the city of Eureka planning department and the coastal commission to re-issue a new change of use permit.

    We are turning the property into a learning academy for hospitality viticulture horticulture the culinary arts and classes to the public.

    I would like to ask you for your help and we have been trying to identify the previous owners for our Lounge Museum that will be in the basement open to the public. However, we are unable to identify two sisters that owned the property and operated as a guest housed rom Germany. This home was then seized by the Nazis during World War II and then seized by the US government after World War II.

    However, we are unable to identify these two sisters through all means that we’ve been given. I was wondering if you could help us.

    We are also creating a timeline for the museum which would include activities and interesting events during 1889 through 1920 and create a picture board/display.

    We have some things some cool pictures but I’d like to expand on it and make it more detailed. Can you help us with this?

    I am currently in the Bay and returning next week so a phone call would be ideal if you are interested. My number is (510) 909-4580 202 M St Eureka CA

    Thank you for any insight and also I love all your posts and the pictures you share with all of us.

    Best Jacqueline Kretchmerjarak
