Biography of Vein Bauer
Oregon Biographies





Vein Bauer, a well known business man of The Dalles, where he has been residing for about thirty years, was born in Brunn, Austria, in 1873, a son of Jacob and Johanna (Schandle) Bauer, also natives of Austria, where they were engaged in farming. He was educated in the schools of Brunn and at an early age he gave evidence of his objection to the militarist government under which he was forced to live. When he had reached the age of fifteen, in 1888, he decided to come to America and become a citizen of this country. On reaching these shores he came to Oregon, settling in Wasco county, where he homesteaded a farm of one hundred and sixty acres, taking up the only kind of work he knew anything about. During his thirty years residence in this state he has been successful from the very beginning and he is now the owner of seven hundred and twenty acres of the most valuable wheat land in Wasco county, his crops netting him a handsome competence.

In 1906 Mr. Bauer removed to The Dalles and has since rented his farm property. He devoted the first two years of his residence in the city to the automobile business, which he disposed of in 1908, and established the real estate business with which he has since been identified. There is a prevailing opinion that Mr. Bauer handles more real estate in The Dalles and surrounding country than most others in the same line in Wasco county, this being especially true during the past ten years. He has also other commercial interests. He was largely instrumental in the organization of The Dalles Hotel Company and has served on the board of directors for five years. Within the past twelve months he put several valuable properties on the market, among others being The Dalles Garage site, the Albert Hotel property, and the business corner at Second and Court streets. He conducts agencies for many large insurance companies, writing fire, marine and live stock insurance, and is a representative of several important insurance companies.

In 1897 Mr. Bauer was married to Miss Anna Neabeack, a daughter of W. H. Neabeack, one of the best known farmers of Wasco county. Mr. and Mrs. Bauer are the parents of one son, Fred J., who is a resident of Portland. Mr. Bauer is one of the best posted men on real estate in the county and is universally esteemed as one of the best citizens of The Dalles, a live wire and a valuable asset to the city's growth. He gives practical support to all projects designed to promote the welfare of the city of his adoption, and the weight of his influence is always thrown on the side of civic advancement.
