From humble beginnings in Pleasant Grove, Iowa, Benjamin Gallagher ventured into the grocery industry at a young age. After the Union Pacific Railroad was completed, he saw great value in setting up shop near a railroad center and Omaha seemed the perfect stop. He partnered with William A. Paxton, Sr. in 1879 and their business, Paxton & Gallagher Company, grew into an impressive wholesale organization. The company developed several brands internally, including P and G, Yellowstone, KAMO, PAGOMA and the memorable Butter-Nut®. They grew into one of the largest wholesale corporations in the nation and their success stemmed from their belief that, “Honest value is the best policy.” The business remained within the Gallagher family until it was sold in 1958.

Paxton & Gallagher Company: Local Values, National Reachhighlights the company’s history through images, papers and objects – many from the Gallagher family!
