This pictorial history unit about Harvey County was compiled by Ronald Dietzel. Acknowledgement – Through their input and suggestions, Kristine Schmucker (HCHM Curator) and Jane Jones (HCHM Archivist) made significant contributions to the compilation of this unit. With the area’s strong focus on agriculture and especially wheat production, it became a natural fit for Harvey County to become a hot spot for the grinding of wheat into flour. Go to Unit #7 “Agriculture in Harvey County Stimulated Flour MIlling Industry” and get an overview of the flour milling industry in Harvey County.
