It is one of a kind museum telling the story of the Civil War through the eyes of the people left at home. Walk through time and listen to the “people” on the train telling you their story. It is very interesting and fascinating.

Lovely place to go and just relax, or enjoy an event. In late summer & the fall they have two (2) fire pits to enjoy.

Nice park with a Biergarten, dog run area, play ground and picnic areas. Easy access to one of the nicest municipal golf courses in Wisconsin, Petrifying Springs GC. Reasonable rates, and pretty challenging. Highly recommended!
