History of this Box Factory

On July 4, 1941, the Prien Box Factory in Riplinger, WI, owned by Ed Prien, was destroyed by fire. Paul Blum of Marshfield purchased stock of the company and rebuilt in the fall of 1941. The name of the factory was then changed to "Blum Brothers Box Factory". In the photo below, cement blocks are being made. Those doing that Work are, left to right: Oscar Pipkorn, Bill Regan, Augie Schneider and Bill Zastrow. (from the Gene Prien collection).
