Hilbert settlement
town of Chase
Hilbert settlement was along Highway C. Although never an officially named place, it does show up on public documents including cemetery records, death certificates, newspaper articles and in obituaries. At one time it had a cheese factory, Catholic, Methodist and Lutheran Churches, Catholic Cemetery, and township Cemetery.   Only the cemeteries and the Catholic church remains today.
