Although not as old as the Farmer's Home building which it occupies, John Dengler Tobacconist since 1917 is one of the oldest tobacco shops under continuous family ownership in the United States. It has, for almost a century provided its patrons with the finest in imported pipes, tobaccos, cigars and smoker's requisites. Known especially for our hand blended custom smoking mixtures and blending bars as well as a large selection of fine pipes The company was honored in 1962 by the first presentation in the United States of the most prestigious "Quality Retailer Award" by the Pipe and Tobacco Council. In most recent years John Dengler was named 'Kapnismologist Extraordinaire ' by the St. Charles Pipe Smokers Association.
Although the nostalgic rich aromas of tobacco pervade the antique atmosphere of the shop, the proprietors have always been alert to modern innovation from being one of the first in the nation to cellophane cigars (1930's) to seeking out the finest in leaf today.
We hope you will enjoy the warm old fashioned hospitality of a firm whose original family tradition of "Quality and Service" is still adhered to, today.
