The Sego Milk Plant is now a long-forgotten landmark, but no history of the plant could be complete without mentioning Robert Carpenter, the only man who worked at the Sego Milk Plant longer than the plant existed. Carpenter began work two days before the first milk delivery to be processed. He fired up the boiler that brought the power and heat to process the first Sego Evaporated Milk in Galt. Carpenter planted the trees, roses and other lovely flowers, making the plant seem park like, adding an attractive area to Galt.
