“Abandoned company town”
This place is on private property. Listing for informational purposes only. Please do not visit without express permission from the land owner. The now defunct company town of Betteravia, a name that refers to the French word for beet root, at one time supported a community of 350 residents. Many were employees at the Union Sugar Company (now a part of Sara Lee Corporation), which persisted in various forms from around the turn of the 20th century until closing permanently in 1993. The facility extracted sucrose from sugar beets, a highly engineered tuber from which thirty percent of the world’s sugar is derived.
