“Pel-Freez: 110 Years of Food and Science” is open until December 18 at the Rogers Historical Museum, 313 S. Second St. in Rogers. Beginning in 1911, the Pelphrey-Dubbell families built Pel-Freez from a small rabbit meat processing company into the largest producer of rabbit meat in the country. Since the 1950s, they have also used animal tissues for the advancement of research and diagnostics in the medical sciences. By the 1970s, Pel-Freez Biologicals had become the company’s main source of income as it expanded into the global market. In 2020, Mercure Capital acquired Pel-Freez Food and Biologicals from the Dubbell family. Today, the company continues to process rabbit meat and produce biologics that are used in organ donor matching, pharmaceutical research, vaccine evaluation and more. The museum’s opening hours are 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesday to Saturday and admission is free. For further information: or call (479) 621-1154. General admission is free. (Courtesy Image)
