Bohn Welding is a four-generation St. Louis Park business.
It started in a two-stall garage at 5909 Goodrich Ave. in 1949 by Richard Joseph Bohn, Sr. and his son, Richard Jr. They started their own business after working in sand and gravel pits.
Richard Jr.’s son Rick started working there off and on when he was age 13 or 14, and took over the business when he was 20. Rick’s son Ethan has been working there for the last seven years.
The Bohns have been in St. Louis Park for decades – in the 1930s the family lived in a farm house where the Dairy Queen on Excelsior Blvd. is now.
