History Walk 2010 a Success!
The 2010 History Walk at Green Ridge Cemetery is now history! Thanks to the almost 300 visitors who walked the beautiful grounds of Green Ridge and enjoyed reenactments of four leaders of Industry & Commerce in Kenosha. This year's Walk featured Henry S. Cooper, one of the founders of Cooper Underwear Company, now Jockey, International, and grower of prize-winning peonies; Zalmon G. Simmons, founder of Simmons Mattress Company; Thomas Jeffery, inventor and manufacturer of Rambler bicycles and automobiles; and a Chicago reporter telling the tale of Edward Bain, founder of Bain Wagon Works, who was shot by a jilted lover.
Special thanks to Roger for driving his 1902 Jeffery Rambler to the Jeffery Mausoleum!
