A great location with fresh water led to the industrialization of the area with George H. Hammond Co.'s meat packing plant. By 1875, Mr. Hammond was selling nearly 2 million dollars worth of meat from his packing plant, and by 1884, the city was incorporated and named after the butcher/ entrepreneur, Mr. Hammond.
