Joseph H. Frantz

Built in 1924, the Joseph H. Frantz sat out the shipping season two years ago, and some thought it might spell the end. The Kinsman Independent had been coming here for years, carrying wheat from Midwest farms to flour mills in Buffalo, New York. When it was decommissioned, the Frantz was brought in to replace it.
