Sheboygan County's iron-fisted work ethic began with its earliest residents.

This wonderful pictorial history of the small family-owned businesses of Sheboygan County begins in the 1870s and ends with a great shot of a 1950s American Classic—McDonald's Golden Arches. Itprovides an intimate look at tin shops and cheesefactories, butchers and blacksmiths, movie theaters and much more. Sheboygan County: Pioneers of Commerce presents a cross section of American life as the country grew from a rural entity to a businessgiant.
