Cigar factory in Sumas - 1929

This is an intriguing article announcing the opening of a Cigar Factory in Sumas, WA.   It would be interesting to find out if this business venture was successful.  Soon afterward, the depression struck our country and impacted many business.  Whether or not the cigar factory survived is not known.

Sumas News, Sept 20, 1929

Look for another posting tomorrow as I have much to share about Sumas history.


  1. Kind of strange to see tobacco from Sumas being sold to the south instead of the north.

  2. I've wondered about that myself. I would like to find out how long they were in business.
