    Shopped there yesterday. Masks on all employees and everyone coming in. My husband and I are high risk so really appreciated that. Great apple cider donuts. My nephew likes the different flavor caramels. Lots to choose from. Keep up the good work!

    While driving through the town, we saw a sign “Frank Lloyd Wright”, followed it and were very lucky to arrive just in time to join a tour of the warehouse.
    Our guide was 83 year old Mike who was genuinely an expert on the building and was very enjoyable in his speaking style.
    The tour starts with an interesting fifteen minute film about Richland Center, the German family, and FLW.
    Mike was extremely knowledgeable and was glad to answer any questions.

    This is a fantastic little park just off the side of the road in the small village of Rockbridge. The natural bridge spans the west fork of the Pine river as it flows down and joins the Pine river a 1/2 mile from the park. Over the ages the two branches of the river have each carved away at their sides of a sandstone ridge until today there is a ridge only about 20 to 30 feet wide extending for about a mile. Near the northern end the west fork carved down far enough to meet a location where it could tunnel through the sandstone ridge and form the natural bridge.

    There is a short hiking trail blasted through the ridge with a bridge at the other end so you can experience both sides of the sandstone ridge. There is a series of steps to the top of the ridge. There is a small park with some playground equipment and a picnic shelter.

    In short if you are in the area this is a must stop especially since it is so accessible and you can easily spend from 30 minutes to 3 hours in the park.

    The Richland Museum and Visitor Center is housed in the old Milwaukee Road railroad station building. It seems to be closed more than open, but we recently found it open and welcoming. They have various exhibits of local artists and "corners" with information on Frank Lloyd Wright (Richland Center's most famous native son) and Ice Age influences in the county (including the somewhat famous Boaz mastodon). Curator staff friendly and enthusiastic about local history and culture.

    This is a 15 mile trail starting in Lone Rock at the end of Richland St. It travels NW on a railroad bed to the north side of Richland Center, ending at the city swimming pool. There is no sign marking the north terminus, and the trail bypasses the center of Richland Center. There is a great Bakery at the corner of Court and Central.

    The trail going north from Lone Rock is a slight incline and follows about 70' west of Hwy 14 for 5 miles. This makes for a very noisy ride. The next 11 miles is away from highways, and the last 4 miles are paved.

    The trail is used by snowmobiles in winter and should be a very pleasant ride in summer. However, the trail is not being maintained well as of this writing. The gravel bed is scored from early spring use by vehicle tires, bike ruts, boot impressions, and frequent animal holes which have eroded. It appears that some maintenance was attempted but was ineffective. Instead of enjoying scenery, we had to be on a continual watch for dangerous conditions, which included a few soft sand sections.

    We were happy to try it once and we enjoyed Richland Center. Round trip was 34 miles. Best way to try it is with a fat-tire e-bike. We wish we could have done it that way.

    This History museum belongs to Richland County, unlike nearby Depot-Richland Center Museum belonging to the city of Richland Center. It's well hidden within Brewer Public Library, and the signs outside don't betray there is a history museum inside the building. So find the library, enter it and from there on you will see signs leading to the museum on the upper floor.

    Great little book shop with a curated selection of books, beers, and wine. I bought a book and a bit of beer. Super friendly staff. Definitely worth a stop.

    We enjoyed drinks and pizza at Phoenix recently. Friendly atmosphere and nice food. Good to see they now have a nice selection of draft beers.
