History made with demolition of Dudden office PDF Print E-mail


On July 6 some history was made and some removed in Venango when the office building used for 64 years by Dudden Elevator, Inc. was demolished to make room for the new Scoular Grain Company offices and additional new truck scale.

It took only a few hours to demolish the old Dudden office building which in 1946 took several months to construct.

The Dudden office building was constructed by Adam Lichtenberg, a well known mason of Venango. At about the same time a new large truck scale was installed in front of the office building to better serve the farmers in the area. 

The Dudden office building and scale were constructed between two then existing wooden elevators, to serve the farmers of the Venango area.
