This is one of the more unique places to see in Wisconsin. The Amish have recently taken ownership and are making upgrades to mill to get it running. They also are rebuilding dam. One of the photograhed places in Wisconsin. Well worth the stop and...More

The mill is kind of out of the way and while it is easy enough to find, it is a little remote. From Augusta go north on Hwy 27, turn left on County V. The county road goes right by the mill, you can't miss...More
