Stockton, WI Custer Creamery Fire, Dec 1913

Custer Creamery Burned

The Custer creamery, located at Custer in the town of Stockton, was totally destroyed by fire at about 2 o’clock Monday, but as yet the cause of the fire is unknown. The creamery, which was owned by a stock company, and of which Alexander Kluck has for some time been general manager, was among the first to be established in the county. It had been in operation for about twenty years and for many of these years the butter made there found a ready and extensive sale in this city.

We have been unable to communicate with any of the officers as to the loss, but the creamery was insured for $1,700.
