“Underground Railroad”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2012

The tour guide gave an excellent tour of The Milton House . It was well worth the time to take the time to stop and see it. We are taking 4 members of our family back to see it at the end of June.

“Great to see an actual stop on the Underground Railroad”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2012

The hidden door in the floor of the log cabin connects back to the octagonal Milton House, one of the earliest buildings in Wisconsin--there before the state was official, I believe. As you creep through the connecting tunnel, which has been enlarged, you can imagine how horrifying it must have been to have to navigate in almost total darkness!

The Milton House was a very early hotel, and there is a lot of local information contained in the museum that is attached to it. Tour guide was very informative and shared many little interesting stories, particularly about various items in the house (hair art, anyone?)

Nice park across the street with a playground and bathrooms.

“Milton House”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2009

the milton house is a beautiful example of simple architecture from the 1800's and visiting it and going on tour was wonderful except i was disgusted with the way our tour guide treated us. we would ask a question and they ignored it and said if i had questions i could talk to the director and when i did she was horrible! she talked down to me and i will never go there ever again until she is replaced. i suggest the same to anyone wanting to see it.
