Biography extracted from History of Sauk County, Wisconsin Chicago: Western Historical Company, published 1880.


Henry W. Sorge. As founder of the Central Wisconsin Creamery Company, Henry W. Sorge deserves especial mention as a distinguished resident of Reedsburg during the period of its industrial growth. His first venture in the creamery business was the Narrows Prairie Creamery. That was highly successful, and the result was the starting of other institutions of its kind, one in the city of Reedsburg, which was incorporated as the Central Wisconsin Creamery Company in 1902. The creamery was first located on the West Side, but that was destroyed by fire, and the present modern buildings were erected by the company. Harry A. Sorge, Reedsburg resident, is secretary and manager at the present time.
