        The canning factory is Sun Prairie's chiefest asset. Porcelain pro-
ducts are manufactured here and this promises to be an important industry.
The creamery takes care of the milk produced by the local farmers who
practice diversified farming to a considerable extent. Much tobacco is ex-
ported from this Dane county town. Sun Prairie has three rural routes.
