Charles W. Knudson

Fruit and produce shipping to Idaho and Montana was a lucrative business. Among the most successful in the shipping business was Charles W. Knudson, who traveled to Butte, Montana, in 1881 to develop a market for the fruit and general produce raised by himself and his father. After serving a mission in 1883-85, he returned to Butte and stayed for several years. In 1892, he built the Union Block1Lydia Walker Forsgren, History of Box Elder County, (Brigham City: Daughters of Utah Pioneers, 1937), 69-70., located at 57 South Main in Brigham City, UT. He also organized the Knudson Brothers Fruit and Produce Company close to the railroad tracks near Forest Street, a brick and stone building still in existence today (2014). Other growers and shippers included Lars Halling and R. L. Fishburn and Sons.2Forsgren, 69-70.
