Pictured below is the Mayville Cheese Factory, located in the northeastern part of Clark County.  The Nachtweys owned two cheese factories, one in Mayville and one in Curtiss (Hoard).












*A. Natchway (Nachtwey); Erick Beisner, owner; his brother Herman Beisner, Cheesemaker
Location: 2.5 miles west of Dorchester (section 16). 




If it is Herman Beisner in the photo above, then *Anton Nachtwey was a previous owner.  The Nachtwey's were still on the 1920 census, so the photo would have been taken sometime after 1925. Linda Mertens
