1899 Indoor Golf | In the Biz

A causal invitation from one friend to another has resulted in the creation of one of the area’s most unique new businesses. Brian Lindenbaum and John-Michael Speelman are co-founders and co-owners of 1899 Indoor Golf, which opened in November. Located at 4700 Everhard Road NW in Jackson Township, 1899 Golf has found its niche: Providing a year-around, weatherproof venue for golfers.

Spring Fashion

The last time About caught up with the owners at Mainstream Boutique in North Canton, they were the new kids on the block. It was January 2014, and sisters Rebecca Paliswat and Elizabeth Hilton had opened the Minneapolis-based franchise at 1977 E Maple Street just four months before. The sisters, both GlenOak High School graduates, hoped the boutique would fill a void they noticed when they went shopping with their mother.

Doug & Jess Bennett give their local picks

It wasn’t necessarily love at first sight for Jess and Doug Bennett. “He said to me once at the office that I was the female version of him and he hated me,” said the former Jess Andreae who grew up in rural Westfield Township in Medina County and moved to Stark County to attend Walsh University. “But I like to think of that as the 40-year-old man version of pulling my pigtails.”
