Fast Fact Image

The 3-story building known as the Wagon Works was built in the 1860's; over the years the Wagon Works building was home to a number of uses and most recently had fallen into a state of disrepair. The City wondered if the building was beyond repair. The community worked with Knudsen's Caramels & Cheesecake to acquire and finance a top to bottom renovation of the Wagon Works building, which now serves as an example of just how one might take a building from a total state of disrepair to a community treasure. Today, the caramel business is stronger than ever and Knudsen Caramels are distributed nationwide.
