SW Michigan Crate, Basket & Veneer Machinery Collection

  • North Berrien Historical Museum 300 Coloma Avenue Coloma, MI, 49038 United States (map)

Since 1925, the Monte family has been dedicated to manufacturing and supplying the finest produce containers available. Sam Monte, owner of Monte Package Company, will be stopping by the North Berrien Historical Museum on the afternoon of Tuesday, September 25 to speak  on this subject. 

During his presentation, Sam will be discussing several local businesses that made Southwest Michigan into what it is known as today: a fruit belt. While touring through the machinery collection, visitors are encouraged to ask questions and reminisce on the days of the veneer baskets.
