Ed Graham started working at Boston Clothiers in 1905. Who would have thought it would start a one hundred-plus-year family tradition? From there to Kraft’s Clothiers, where he became the General Manager, to finally opening his own store in 1936 across the street where the American Trust’s Trust Department is today. Ed was cementing the roots of tradition. His sons Joe and John Graham helped him open that first store in a long, skinny building that sat flush with the Cottingham & Butler building along Main Street. Though they eventually wanted to renovate, the building owners at the time purportedly did not allow it because he did not want to raise the building’s value and pay higher property taxes. Graham’s moved across and up the street in 1968 to the Fischer Building where Dubuque Religious Goods stands today.

You Can Help Create A More Sustainable Dubuque

Posted Cori Burbach, Sustainable Community Coordinator on March 24, 2014

Who has the best ideas about how to make Dubuque’s neighborhoods sustainable? The residents that live there, the non-profit that serve those residents, and the business owners and employees that work there. That’s why in 2013, the City Council created the Sustainable Dubuque Community Grants program to fund creative, impactful ideas that had energy behind them but just needed a little bit of funding to be launched.
