It’s Wednesday, so you know what that means! We are going to hear a story of Kane’s history from the Kane Historic Preservation Society.
Tonight Matt Boyer, the Kane High member of the group, tells the story of when a Japanese submarine came to Kane in 1943. It’s so interesting!
An extra piece of history from Matt: Although most towns claim to be on it, Kane is one of the true towns that made the bombing list of German dictator Adolf Hitler during WW II. The reason for the little town of Kane being on this list is because of Kane Manufacturing, one of Kane’s most prominent and longest industries in town. Throughout WW II, Kane Manufacturing was building a great majority of the bomb tail fins for the United States Army. Because of this, Hitler thought that by destroying one of the factories that was creating something this great for the Army, he would be able to put a set back on the next air attack on Germany by the United States Army.
