DescriptionAlthough the sound of nearby falls on the Sheboygan River may have inspired a Native American term (Shawb-wa-way-going—“rumbling underground”) for this location, the town means sausage and cheese to many people because of its industries. In addition to its savories, it produces and distributes steel, furniture, plastic products and in nearby Kohler, plumbing products.
