Taken From "Along the Wisconsin River" By A. Decker, 1907


Stevens Point rejoices in the possession of an excellent milling firm. It was established in 1875, and has put in full time, and, in fact, has been running over time ever since. This plant uses about 125 horsepower of the old Wisconsin River’s unlimited supply, and has a capacity of 200 barrels of wheat flour, 50 barrels of rye flour, and 25 tons of feed per day. The supply of wheat comes from Dakota and Minnesota, and the product is sold almost entirely in Wisconsin. Their leading brand is Gold Crown. Their other brands are Gilt Edge and Rosebud, also white rye flour.

H. H. Pagel has been manager of this plant for ten years, and has been with the Company for over fifteen years.

He is young in years, but old in experience. He has put the best years of his young manhood into this plant, and has developed an industry that is profitable to the stockholders and is a success from every standpoint.
