The Greenwood Creamery

Transcribed by Tiffiney Hill



Devoting this space again to the industries of our city, we take pleasure in presenting this week the Greenwood Creamery, another one of our most prosperous and successful industries.

The above building was erected by N.C. Foster in the summer of 1901, for Carl Grashorn, who operated the creamery on a small scale until 1904, when he sold an interest in the business to A.F. Falk. In 1906 this partnership dissolved, Mr. Grashorn again taking full possession, in or until September 1, 1908, when the Eau Claire Creamery Company leased the plant form Mr. Grashorn for a period of one year, and this season proved to be so prosperous and the outlook for a more extensive business so promising, that on June 1, 1909, the company purchased the plant of Mr. Grashorn, and during the past summer have done an enormous business.

This company the past summer have spent several hundreds of dollars in extensive improvements to their plant, thus preparing for the growing business which increases every year in propensity. Among the noteworthy improvements they have made to the plant, is the building of a sewer system to the creek, putting new cement floors throughout in the place of the old wooden ones; a cement driveway along the south side of the building; a covered driveway for the handling of mild from wagon to platform under shelter; new ice house; coal and fuel house; what was formerly the old ice house has been turned into a storage room and refrigerator; engine taken out of boiler room and put in the churn room; new stack and chimney; hot and cold water all though the plant, and a new office and testing room built.

The Greenwood Creamery is an industry of which we can well be proud as it is one of the cleanest and best institutions of its kind to be found in the state of Wisconsin.
