Many of the first settlers to the Green County [1] area were European immigrants from Switzerland. The fertile land was more than suitable for dairy farming and soon a bustling cheese industry was born. In the early 1900s, the number of cheese factories in Green County peaked at just over 200. Today only twelve remain, offering many varieties of cheeses, including the only cheese factory in the nation that makes Limburger Cheese. Green County is also home to the Joseph Huber Brewing Company (located in Monroe), the nation’s second oldest brewery. The Swiss heritage still has a large impact on the community and its influence can still be enjoyed in many of the County’s Festivals. It can also still be seen in the architecture of many of Green County’s buildings and homes, including the Green County courthouse built in 1891.
