Ownership and History In 1859, Nicholas Killmeyer built a hotel and grocery in Kreischerville, Staten Island, and in 1890 he enlarged and refurnished it. It was described in an 1898 book as having "probably the handsomest bar and billiard rooms on the Island." When Nicholas Killmeyer retired in the 1890s, his son Theodore took over management of the hotel, and his son Albert managed the store.
