CORN BELT PACKING COMPANY
Fred Kretschmer succeeded A. B. McCue as president and is generally given credit for making the company a profitable enterprise. The beginning of the Great Depression in 1921 closed the plant which was later reopened as a distribution point for a Chicago meat packer.
The 1923 Dubuque City Directory listed the corner of 30th and Washington.
