Signs Of The Farm Companies That Used To Be Here
Look closely and you can still see signs of how many plow, tractor and buggy companies were in this urban neighborhood more than 100 years ago.
As settlers were migrating north and west, the warehouses along the railroad tracks here helped get them the tools they needed to break the prairie soil.
The back wall of Herschel Lofts facing the dog park has a faded sign for the Herschel-Roth Manufacturing Company.
