Knapp-Stout & Co. Company Photos Archive. In 1846 the
partners John H. Knapp, Henry L. Stout, William Wilson, and
Andrew Tainter founded the Knapp, Stout Company, which then
began its long and profitable career in the lumber industry,
first in Wisconsin and later expanding to adjoining states.
Benefiting by superior leadership and a strategic location in
Menomonie, the company withstood the financial crises of the
1870's by plowing its earnings back into large-scale timberland
investments, improvements, and enlargements of its physical
facilities as well as by integrating and diversifying its
operations. In 1878 the company easily made the transition from
a partnership organization to a corporation, changing its name
to The Knapp-Stout and Co., Company, which title it retained
until its dissolution in the early years of the 20th century.
