Overview


Sheboygan County's iron-fisted work ethic began with its earliest residents. From the jackknife trading posts and mill wrights of the early 1800s to the spas and "Great Wall of China" of Kohler Company, the importance of commerce to Sheboygan County is evident. This wonderful pictorial history of the small family-owned businesses of Sheboygan County begins in the 1870s and ends with a great shot of a 1950s American Classic--McDonald's Golden Arches. It

provides an intimate look at tin shops and cheese

factories, butchers and blacksmiths, movie theaters and much more. Sheboygan County: Pioneers of Commerce presents a cross section of American life as the country grew from a rural entity to a business

giant.
