Thorp, WI Beginnings (1871 - 1993)
Contact: Ethan Searce
Urs Raber, a Swiss immigrant in late 1900s, operated a cheese factory in Thorp area; I think it was Blue Moon, or similar. Seemed to be a thriving business. Was offered to merge with some other company (which had ulterior motives). I understood the other company simply closed Raber's cheese factory down, once the merger was completed - a real stinker of a deal. Going on my memory here; maybe someone can verify this.
