Contact: Dorene Newman
The Cheese Maker's Manufacturing Co. was formed in 1919 in Riplinger, Clark Co., Wisconsin. The organizers of the Company sold their stock to cheesemakers and business investors of the area. Wooden cheese boxes were then made. All the boxes were turned and nailed by hand. The only machinery that was used was a heading machine, a tongue and grooving machine, a planer, a veneer lathe, and a clipper. The photo below was taken shortly after it opened.
