From 1867 to 1878 master brewer Veit Geiger operated the Geiger Brewery at this location. The artesian springs assured an abundant source of pure water, and the nearby caves provided a constant 50-degree storage cellar. The brewery, was just one of many pieces of Osceola history steeped in water resources. The St, Croix River and its tributaries ferried the area's rich harvest of timber and grain to market. It transported people and commercial goods aboard a fleet of steam-driven riverboats. it powered local grist and sawmills. Additionally, the river's stunning scenic beauty - focused in the Dalles of the St. Croix and in Cascade Falls - was a constant cultural influence in the development of the community.
