The town of Kenton was built near both rail lines and the Columbia River, and its shipping opportunities encouraged industrial companies to locate there. By 1911, Kenton was second only to St. Johns as a manufacturing center. Swift & Company alone employed over 1500 workers, and more beef was butchered in Kenton than in any other town in the Northwest. In 1909, Swift's Kenton Traction Company began operating a streetcar line to carry workers to and from the meat packing plant.
