This crate came from the Kimball Bros. General Store, formerly of Briggsville, Wisconsin. I know this to be true because I personally received the box out of the store when I was cleaning out the store for a new owner. The building now sits empty, and history is being lost just like in many small towns.
Kimball's General Store was where people from all over the area "traded" for generations before the big stores came in. It was also served as the local post office and up stairs was the community's mortuary.
