Welcome to
the neighborhood



Henry Wemme is credited with developing the Overlook Neighborhood in the early 1900's.

Ol' Henry was an entrepreneur of German decent who came to America with "a spool of thread and a needle or two as capital." He made his money as supplier of tents and other related products.

Thanks to him the Overlook neighborhood continues to this day as a highly desirable place to live and work.
