The Imobersteg cheese factory, located just south of the Wisconsin-Illinois state line, was operated by Alfred and Anna Imobersteg. Initially with milk from the Imobersteg herd, the factory produced Swiss, brick and limburger cheeses, later expanding its production with milk from neighboring farms delivered by horse and wagon. The cheese was taken to the brine tank located in the basement of the residence.
