Celebrating our past: 'Fort Knox of Green County Gold'
The "Fort Knox" for "Green County Gold" was photographed in 1955 at the Town Hall Cheese Factory located at the intersection of County Roads N and C and currently operates as Edelweiss Creamery under the direction of Bruce Workman. Pictured in the foreground washing the wheels are Sam Bahler and right rear Roger Zee. After being in the warm cellar for four to six weeks, during which time Swiss cheese forms the eyes (holes), the wheels are then moved to the cold cellar for the aging process.
