2. Chinook - Rapid City, SD/Huntsville, UT
Please remember, we are Brittany Fans! but, not great photographers... :^)
"In the 1890’s, settlers were in search for a rapid growing trade point with farmable land in Northern Montana. As a result, the community of Chinook formed. With fertile land, good stock ranges, and a decent supply of lignite coal, this area seemed full of endless opportunities. By 1886 a railway was laid in preparation for the arrival of our first train on September 13th, 1887. At the time, Chinook was the second largest city in the valley and had the largest livestock, wool shipping point in Northern Montana, and plenty of timber. By 1903, Chinook had much to offer. Hotels, businesses, churches, schools filled our town, along with a telephone system, a power plant, a railway, and productive farming and ranching. On July 4th, 1914, Chinook held a massive parade, celebrating the completion of the Court House. Chinook had much entertainment options to offer including: Chautaqua Tents, where plays, revival meetings, musical events, and circuses were held, hunting fishing, and camping on the Tiger Ridge, playing in Clear Creek, and Orpheum Theatre or Blaine Theatre. During the second World War, German war prisoners worked the beet fields as well as Mexican nationals the following year."
Chinook sugar beet factory.
"In 1924, the
Utah-Idaho Sugarbeet Company moved to Chinook
through 100 train cars. The formal, grand
opening took place on October 1st,
1925, and the factory remained open for 26
years. Harvested sugarbeets were made into
molasses and beet pulp. During WW II, the
factory was short on laborers, so Mexican
nationals were hired to take care of the sugarbeet
crops. Within years after the factory’s
closure, the sugarbeet became our school mascot."
