Historical Note

Siebrand Niewenhous founded his company of builders, S. Niewenhous, Inc., in Manhattan in the late 1870s. After his death in 1914, the presidency of the company was taken over by August Niewenhous. The company worked on construction projects in all five boroughs of New York, many of which were for Roman Catholic organizations. S. Niewenhous, Inc. remained in operation until 1952.
