The Union Sardine Company, built in 1900, was owned by James McCurdy. The original building burned in 1905 and was rebuilt in 1906. During World War I the company prospered and constructed camps and houses for their workers. In 1943 the R.J. Peacock Company bought and operated the factory until it closed in 1953. The building was later used as a poultry house.
