This information comes from a 1970s Central Washington Grain Growers brochure, showing off their grain facilities.
Hanson, along with Almira, was one of the tow original stations which began what is now Central Washington Grain Growers. Just across the line into Grant County, Hanson station serves growers in Lincoln County as well. Until 1974 this area was represented by Mr. A. Keiner, long-time resident and one of the cooperative’s original directors.
From the first 50,000 bushel crib elevator, Hanson has grown to 641,000 bushel capacity. Just this last year improvements in this elevator’s receiving leg mad it one of the most efficient in the entire company.
