Pillsbury Stock Price After Stock Market Crash of 1929

In 1869, Charles A. Pillsbury established the Pillsbury Flour Mills Company. Pillsbury and Company was founded in 1872 by Charles Alfred Pillsbury and his uncle John Sargent Pillsbury. The company was the first in the United States to use steel rollers for processing grain. The finished product required transportation, so the Pillsbury’s assisted in funding railroad development in Minnesota.
