I believe that the Whitewater Canning Company started when several residents bought what had been a wagon factory and converted it to a cannery. [Fred Kraege, Images of Whitewater, page 84] Canning started in 1914 with sweet corn. Kraege indicates they later processed both peas and tomatoes. I am not sure when they closed but I have seen a 1945 calendar of theirs. However, they were not in operation when I arrived in Whitewater in 1965.
