Found: "Wisconsin's only cheese factory built exclusively to show how Swiss cheese is made. Located in Monroe, Green County, Wisconsin in the heart of little Switzerland" by Curteichcolor, circa 1960
Wisconsin's slogan "America's Dairyland" today means artisan cheeses or bland cheese made by sparkling clean factories. Decades ago, there were small cheese factories specializing common varieties sometimes brought to Wisconsin by recent immigrants including swiss, limburger, provolone, cheddar and other varieties. The small factories were sprinkled throughout the state in small towns and on rural roads.
