From "The Town of Vermont - 'The Early Years'", Marian Swoboda: "was built between 1880 – 1890 on Greenwald Road just off Highway 78. It was named after Henry Greenwald. On a certain day farmers would gather to saw wood for wintertime fuel. Some of the cheesemakers were Carl and John Ampor, Fred Hofer, Werner Sheidegger, John and Fred Wittwer and Anton Kohler. The factory closed down in the early 1930’s, later becoming a residence."
