Walter K. “Jarbo” Poulson brought fame to the name “Red Onion,” at least in the Upton Community, when he opened the “Red Onion Saloon,” which operated for several years prior to Prohibition. When Prohibition resulted in the closure of the Red Onion Saloon, Poulson simply moved his business to the barn at his “Red Onion Ranch.” As the community organized the Red Onion Museum in 1996, the historic name was again put to use.
