What is now Sumner’s industrial area was owned by the Zehnders, a Swiss family who ran a dairy farm there. Mary Elizabeth, who was a Zehnder before a Ryan, notes that when the time came for her grandmother to sell, the presence of artesian well on the property brought purchase bids from both Fleischman Yeast Company and Olympia Beer. Her grandmother, no doubt influenced by Sumner’s long-standing prejudice against alcoholic beverages, sold to Fleischmans. They opened their plant in 1912.
There is a Zehnder Street west of the Burlington Northern Railroad tracks.
