News: Thorp (More Cheese Factories - 29 Feb 1912)


Surnames: Schmidt, Bobb

----Source: Greenwood Gleaner (Greenwood, Clark Co., Wis.) 29 Feb 1912

Carpenter Geo. J. Schmidt secured the contract let on Saturday last for the erection of the addition to the Thorp Dairy Co.'s creamery to be used for a cheese factory and residence. The new building will be frame covered with iron, 26 x 46 feet in size, and two stories high. Work on the structure will begin as soon as the stone wall can be built for the foundation.

A number of farmers in the southeast part of the town of Reseburg are forming a stock company for the purpose of erecting a cheese factory. The new concern will incorporate under the state law and will no doubt do a flourishing business from the start. Arrangements for building at once are already underway. The name selected for the new concern is "The Reseburg Cheese Co.," and 200 shares of stock at $10 per share will comprise the capital stock. The factory will be located on the corner occupied by P.E. Bobb's sawmill. (Thorp Courier)
