Cheese center ready for its debut

IN ONLY TWO DAYS the long awaited Plymouth Cheese Counter and Dairy Heritage Center will be open for the public to visit and enjoy.

After a long journey, the latest addition to downtown’s delights at 133 E. Mill St. will open to the public Friday.

It makes a fitting tribute to the Cheese Capital of the World, proclaiming and celebrating Plymouth’s heritage in cheese and dairy.

Architecturally alone, the new center is a stunning accomplishment. The historic soul of the 19th-century building has been lovingly restored and recreated, both on the main floor and in the upstairs luxury apartments.

But that historic heart is flavored with modern technological touches that will open the history of Plymouth’s signature industry to visitors young and old.

Interactive touch screens open up the long and colorful history of the cheese industry in Plymouth and Sheboygan County, from its humble beginnings on farms where farmers made cheese to use excess milk production to the development of Cheeseville and its many factories and warehouses, to the Cheese Exchange that made Plymouth the center of the cheese world to today’s innovative cheese companies that carry on the tradition and shared it with the nation and the world through their awardwinning and market-leading products.

It makes learning about the history of the Cheese Capital of the World entertaining and tasty for everyone. Whether you’ve lived here all your life or are a first-time visitor to Plymouth, you’re sure to learn something you probably never knew before about how cheese made

Plymouth famous – and vice versa.

There are also interactive displays with quizzes about cheese and the dairy industry, and a chance to dress up a selfie with all kinds of cheese accessories in the Say Cheese photo center.

But there’s much more at the Cheese

Counter and Dairy Heritage Center.

The counter part offers a wide array of locally-produced cheeses and meats, from local companies that lead the way in their business – a chance to take home and try for yourself what makes and keeps Plymouth the Cheese Capital of the World.

There’s a wide variety of clothing and gift items to choose from, following in the dairy and cheese theme.

And since all of that is likely to make one hungry, there is a lunch counter that will continue the theme with grilled cheese sandwiches – featuring signature recipes from local cheese companies, macaroni and cheese, wholesome milk and great ice cream treats.

The counter/center will also fill a void in the city, providing someplace where visitors can make one stop and learn all about why we rightly call ourselves the Cheese Capital of the World – and confirm that designation.

It’s one more attraction to draw visitors to downtown Plymouth and the rest of the city while proudly showing off just one of the things that makes us great – our terrific cheese and food products.
