- Created Date
The N. R. Allen’s Sons Company plant in winter, looking northwest across Pike Creek from downtown Kenosha. A horse-drawn carriage and pedestrians are crossing the old Main Street (now Sixth Avenue) bridge on the right, and Peoples Cash Meat Market can be seen in the foreground. Circa 1902.
Between 1856 and 1927, N. R. Allen Sons Company, Inc., founded by Nathan Allen and Levi Grant, produced leather products such as horse harnesses, saddle skirting, shoes, and strap leather for World War I. Between 1926 and 1927, the United States Leather Company of Manhattan gained control over the tannery, ended operations and production in Kenosha, Wisconsin, and moved them to Grand Rapids, Michigan.
