Wein, situated on the west half section 14, township 56, range 17, and twenty miles north of Salisbury, and nine miles south of New Cambria, Macon County, was laid out by Francis MOENNING, Leonard HOLTZ and Anton HUBER, and is one of Chariton county's most prominent rural villages. The location of the town is all that could be desired, being a high rolling prairie, almost exempt from malarial diseases, so common in low lands. As an educational center, Wein's reputation is by no means confined to the rural districts of the neighborhood, it being the home of one of the best schools of the county and posessing the finest church, the property of the Catholics. Mount St. Marie's church is an elegant brick structure, completed at a cost of $25,000, and is elegantly finished and furnished throughout. Religious services are conducted each Sunday. The accommodations of the school building, just west of the church, are first class, amply meeting all demands. The school year consists of ten months, commencing Sept. 1. Wein has a number of enterprising and substantial business establishments, that enjoy the confidence and patronage of the many thrifty citizens that inhabit that community.
