Admin/Biographical History George Hauser came to the Venice area from Minneapolis, Minnesota in December 1925. He stayed with his parents, who were building a home in Nokomis. They were interested in beginning a lumber business, so the Venice Lumber Company began. Susan came with their two daughters in February 1926. The couple purchased property and established their home in the Hatchett Creek area and lived out their days there. He was postmaster in the 1930s and continued the lumber business until it was sold in 1959. He then retired at age 75. Mr. Hauser was a council member in the very early days of the City of Venice.
