Wong Potato Company

Wong Potato Company
The Wong patriarch immigrated from China to San Francisco, probably very early in the 20th century. In 1930, the family moved to southern Oregon, bought land and founded a very large potato farming and co-op shipping enterprise. They also opened the county's first Chinese restaurant on Main St., Klamath Falls. It's still there and I will upload a photo of it, eventually. Wong Potato is now owned by the Chin family, but I do not know whether they are related.
