In the early fifties Farmer’s Grain was established to provide local grain farmers with an outlet for the crop. Three large silos were constructed between Washington Street and Ettie Street.
The access to the silos split the block and eventually the city paved the street to allow the large trucks a safer access.
The paved street was named Kraupahen. It stands for Krauskopf, Pape and Henke who were the city officials influential in the formation of the street.
