The first cream cheese factory was built and operated by Mr. Dippe Millar. Here he made cream cheese using his own secret formula upon which he had worked for some time. For some years, he became quite famous for his special cheese which he exhibited all over the world. He trained the Mclaren brothers, and also Jacob Kraft, who, after learning the secret of cream cheese spread, branched out to form their own companies. The McLarens marketed a brand known as “Imperial” from Toronto and Kraft took the Millar secret to Milwaukee to launch his company. It is now known as the Kraft Cheese firm.

A publicity stunt in the mid 1800's lead to the creation of a 7,300 pound "Mammoth Cheese", and inspired the famous poet, James McIntire, to write the now-classic "Ode to the Mammoth Cheese."
