Longwood Township Businesses

Clark County, Wisconsin



In the eighteen seventies, Niran H. Withee built a stave and heading mill in Longwood and later constructed the first cheese factory in that part of Clark County. He also cleared a large farm and although he had other homes and businesses, he always referred to Longwood as his "Home Place".

Prior to his residence in Longwood, he had made his home at Tony, Wis., where he operated a cheese factory for about four years.  He built up a fine business, and established himself with the public as a good businessman and a good citizen.  Alton H. Jenkins, who operated a farm owned by Otto Wetzel (his father-in-law) was also one of Zelm's trusted employees.  Alternate View.
