Historical NoteReturn to Top

The Prunarians was a group of businessmen in Vancouver, Washington, in the 1920s. At that time, Clark County in Washington was considered the prune capital of the world. The group formed in 1919 in order to "promote prune culture and consumption and to foster cooperation between local growers and merchants." They also promoted the general interests of Clark County and held an annual Prune Harvest Festival.
