PLYMOUTH — The Cheese Counter and Dairy Heritage Center recently held a ribbon cutting ceremony.
The Cheese Counter and Dairy Heritage Center is located in the formerly vacant and foreclosed building at 133 East Mill Street in Downtown Plymouth. The center highlights Wisconsin’s strong cheese-making tradition and heritage, will pay particular homage to the history of cheese-making in Sheboygan County.
It is estimated that 15 percent of all cheese consumed in the United States moves through Plymouth. The city was also home to the Wisconsin Cheese Exchange, which was founded there in 1918. As a result, the city has been dubbed the “Cheese Capital of the World.”
