Colby, Wisconsin centennial
(1873-1973)

[Cover] Colby, Wisconsin centennial 1873-1973,   pp. [unnumbered]-[1]


CHARLES L. COLBY
'4V '-- - --- --- --- --- ---   --- --- 1_ ----- -  -Fact.
A builder of railroads
To Wisconsin he came,
To develop our country
And give Colby its name.
The pioneers followed
With axe and with mill,
To denude the forest
To work with a will.
On the line of two counties
Both vying to please,
Came a city of boosters
And world-famous cheese.
