In 1902, "packers and shippers of dried fruit, Harry Lechler manager, office 5 North. First Street"

Notes on Hanford plant from Pacific Rural Press, August 5, 1899: According to the Sentinel, the Inderrieden packing house on the Valley Road in Hanford, just being completed, is a model building for that business. Fruit men and builders who have inspected the new building have pronounced it to be without an equal in the State for the purpose for which it is intended. This reflects great credit on Manager Hoag, as the entire building from office to engine room was constructed under his supervision, and in accordance with his plans as to how a packing house should be built, and upon Dave Gamble, superintendent of construction. The building faces 170 feet on the railroad track, and, including porches on each side, is 100 feet wide. This large space is divided up into a stemming room 100x76 feet, an engine room on the north end 10 feet wide, a packing room 50x60 feet, office 20x16, private room 15x16, scale room 15x16 and sweat rooms 15x32 feet. The office, scale and private rooms are located at the northwest corner of the building and the weighing-in scales are close to the office, reducing the work of receiving to a minimum. In the engine room a new engine and boiler of 20 FT. P. capacity have been placed in position, with steam pipes leading to the sweat rooms, where waste steam will be utilized.
