The city of Schaller, named after Phillip Schaller, was incorporated in 1882. The city had been founded in August 1879 as a station for the railroad under construction. Throughout the middle part of the twentieth century a major industry consisted of the packers of Bango and Jolly Time popcorn. The presence and size of these two companies helped Schaller become “The Popcorn Capital of the World.” Popcorn is still a major area crop but the companies moved on to other locations in the 1980s.
