St Louis led the nation in tobacco production in the early 1900s, almost 40% of the total supply of the nation, and John Weisert was a big part of that with over 100 brands. John Weisert Tobacco Company Building is a historic landmark and visitors can still see the name painted on the antique brick. They were forced to quit making cigars when Louis Applestein, the last cigar hand-roller in the city passed away at 83. The business dwindled from there until the grandson of the company's founder, who was the only employee, was forced to close the doors after 133 years in the industry in 1989. This officially was St Louis's final call in the tobacco manufacturing industry.
