Sugar Beets
Sugar Beets

The Sugar Beet Factory west of Kimberly, was built in 1917.  In 1916 the contact price for beets was $5.25 per ton.

At first the Sugar Beets had to be transported 42 miles to the nearest processing plant.  On one trip the carts hauling the beets, derailed and the beets had to be burned because they were intermixed with cinders from the engine.
