Local Inventors—Remarkable Creativity

Our small community has produced an amazing array of innovations in every sphere of human activity—agricultural, aquaculture, recreation, and engineering technology. From late-19th-century school desks, to 20th-century fruit sorters and electrical circuit switches, to unmanned aerial vehicles—the list of innovative devices and technologies originating in the area or significantly improved by local ingenuity is impressive.


Who were/are the local inventors? What did they invent? What did they patent? Practical, actual innovative items will be teamed with engineering illustrations to reveal the inner workings of local inventions and innovations.
