Waterfalls of Wisconsin: The Wild Waters of Intrigue (America Through Time)

These spectacular waterways are dispersed throughout America’s Dairyland. From the raging torrents to the lesser-known creeks and streams, these waterways comprise this definitive collection.

Abandoned Wisconsin: The Demise of America’s Dairyland (America Through Time)

Abandoned Wisconsin exemplifies the slow demise of America’s Dairyland, a place where architectural decay runs rampant like a noxious contagion. Captured through the seasons, these neglected and forgotten structures fall victim to time and the elements, left behind and barely standing.

Forgotten Wisconsin: Detour Through Desolation (America Through Time)

In continuation of Abandoned Wisconsin: The Demise of America’s Dairyland, our travels delve further into the abandonment found throughout the failed farmlands of Wisconsin. In addition to the abandoned houses and barns, discover schools from a lost time and the churches left behind.

This is a FREE event. Refreshments will be served.
