Milton highlight includes the Milton House. Take the tour and learn about the history of the concrete structures. The slave hideout was a highlight of a tour. Please take your kids they will love the dug out tunnel and the log cabin.

This is definitely well worth the visit if ever in this area! Very difficult to understand how we can be so cruel to each other...delighted to see we crossed racial lines to be HUMAN, COMPASSIONATE & CARING!

Tour was slightly over 1 hour. Very informative. Interesting history right here in WI. Miranda was a great tour guide. Just a mile away is a good restaurant, Milton Family Restaurant.
