Innovative Farmers

A special tribute to Joseph Allen Taylor and his son Chet, who were the first to develop the potato cellar in 1909. At this time the Russet Burbank had been introduced to the Taylors. They planted the first 20 ares just to the west. The Russet was highly accepted in the markets, making it possible for the Taylors to become one of the largest growers/shippers in the state. The potato cellar make marketing possible throughout the fall to spring season.

This monument is dedicated to all early pioneers who contributed in making the potato industry the giant we know today.
