Schwamb's Co-operative Cheese Factory was built nearly a mile east of the Tioga depot and store in 1917 (the building is what is more currently known as Tioga Inn Tavern, which I'll get to in a minute). It was operated by the neighboring farmers and patrons until 1928. First cheesemaker was Rob Casper, follwed by his brother Frank, then Burgee, Peterson, Jess Pickett and Ed Schmerler. Sold in 1928 to Walter Ott (Marshfield) and he renamed it Woodland View Cheese Factory. Mr. Ott operated it for a little over 3 yrs before selling it to Francis Knops of Stratford. In 1944 Mr. Knops quit making cheese and auctioned off the property. It was made into a tavern in 1945.
