  • Cady Cheese Factory, Inc.
    No visit to Wisconsin would be complete without a tour of a cheese factory, and this one is quite the one. They make many kinds of delicious cheeses, and flavors, of longhorn cheese. Their special longhorn cheese is made into 6 inch diameter longhorns and smaller 4 inch deli or mini-longhorn; where they say that cheese is much better when made into these smaller versions; with better body, flavor and taste. All are 100% natural cheese, that can be sold with a special customer's label, their own Cady Creek Farms label or in the factory cheese and gift shop. The cheese can be purchased in bulk, wrapped, single-pack slices or smaller cuts. Cady township is located in western Wisconsin and in 1908, a cheese factory opened to take care of the processing milk from the local farms. Before the invention of refrigeration and modern transportation, creameries and cheese factories were all over, with over 1600 in the area producing cheese at one time. In 1960, Delores and Norman Marcott bought the factory, making barrel cheese that was then processed into smaller quantities. Their son Dale, learned the process from the floor up, before going off to college, where he studied biology and chemistry to further improve the process of cheese making. Dale and his wife Wendy, bought the factory in 1978, and put in equipment that would make the longhorn cheese. Unfortunately, or perhaps not, the factory burned down in 1991, so that the Marcotts were forced to rebuild, but this rebuilding allowed them to put up a completely state-of-the-art factory that enabled them to process 700,000 gallons of milk per day. Their packaging comes in the mini-longhorn, deli loaves, 6 inch longhorns, full face cuts, shingle cuts in resealable plastic bags, or half moon cuts. The full mini-longhorns will last for 9 months from day of making, while the smaller packages last 7 months. Varieties come in Colby, mozzarella, muenster, hot pepper, veg'y Colby, baby Swiss, Monterey jack, provolone, cheddar, and gold'n jack.

  • Wilson Place Mansion & Gift Shop
    The original house was built in 1859 as a colonial style home, by Captain William Wilson, a lumber baron, founder and first mayor of Menomonie; as well as the region's first state senator. During the year of 1875, he put a sandstone wall around the property's 22 acres that still exists today. Upon his death, his daughter Angelina and her husband, James Huff Stout, inherited the estate in 1892, and they began a large remodeling and expansion that made the home into a Queen Anne mansion with 17 fireplaces, carved mahogany staircase, wraparound porches on all three floors and third floor ballroom. The house became the property of George La Pointe, Jr. in the early 1920s, who was the grandson of Captain Wilson, and with his wife, Irene, George reduced the size of the home by two thirds, into a more Mediterranean style villa, which presently exists today. It became a museum and contains all of the furniture that was installed in 1846, as well as many wall coverings and panels. During the Christmas season, there are 42 various themed trees decorated throughout the home.  There is a wonderful gift shop located there carrying many items that relate to the area's economy and local items that are unique.

  • Schegelmilch House
    Augusta and Herman Schegelmilch constructed a new brick house in 1871, in hopes of avoiding fires that had previously burned down much of the city of Eau Claire, Wisconsin. It was the first such building and also a year before the city officially became Eau Claire. Herman's hardware store was one of those buildings that was destroyed by the fires and he desperately wanted to avoid that in the future. The Chippewa Valley Museum took over the running of the house and it remains a fine example of what middle-class homes at the turn of the century looked like. Many of the furnishings belonged to the Schegelmilch family, with many other items added to showcase the magnificent home. A tour of the house will help you to understand the wonderful antiques that fill its rooms, all sitting upon marvelous hard wood floors. The old upright piano is still there and is often played during the holidays and museum functions. The wonderful woodburning kitchen stove is still there, hooked up and in great shape. The bathroom's claw foot tub is still there and another unique tub is the fold-down tub that looks more like a clothes closet made of wood. Family members occupied the home until the 1970s.

  • Carson ParkCarson Park Eau Claire, Wisconsin
    The 134 acre Carson Park is located on a peninsula created by the oxbow lake known as Half Moon Lake in Eau Claire, Wisconsin. It was part of the Chippewa River and opened in 1915, in honor of timber baron, William Carson; since the land was given to the city in his will in 1914. It is here that the famed baseball stadium that was home to the Eau Claire Bears used to play and where Hank Aaron started to play baseball at the age of 18. A statue outside the stadium is dedicated to him, and today, it is home to the Eau Claire Express and Cavaliers, and four high school teams. There are five football teams that use the football stadium at Carson Park and in the summer, it is used for football games for two teams. The field the football teams played at became quite bare by the end of the season, so fieldturf was installed in 004. The Chippewa Valley Museum is housed here, as well as the Paul Bunyan Logging Camp; so it quite obvious that this park is used all the time and well attended by all the citizens of this great city. There are numerous trails located throughout the park, as well as many other recreational venues that are excellent for the residents to spend their free time, weekends and holidays doing all kinds of athletic or exercise programs.

  • Wisconsin Yellowstone Trail
    Imagine a roadway across the United States that existed without numbers, or any kind of identification. Well, that was the way it was in 1912, until small local town businessmen in South Dakota decided that a plan was needed to change the haphazard way of crossing the nation, so that it would be easier and more beneficial to the many towns, cities and villages that would line the roadway. The Yellowstone Trail was the result and slowly but surely the rest of the country helped improve roads, many of which were only mud trails, and create maps that would help with the newly marked roadways. The work was done by the Yellowstone Trail Association, that found the route, persuaded the road improvements and paving, made the maps and folders that would help guide travelers, and last but not least, promote tourism along the way. This idea was such a success, that it helped motivate the rest of the country, and the world, to create numbered roadways, improve roads and make maps that helped the traveler. In 1913, the Lincoln Highway Association, made up of industrialists, started a route of their own with the help of big organizations and public relation budgets. The Yellowstone today is found on the less traveled roads where the speed limits are slower. So the Yellowstone Trail became the first transcontinental automobile roadway in the world, but in this country it went from the northern parts of the United States from Massachusetts to Washington state. It is strange that this roadway is rarely spoken or heard of, but times continue to change, and the massive interstate highways have changed the old, slower roads that still traverse this beautiful country. And it is on those marvelous roads that travelers can still find out of the way, or strange oddities, with gorgeous views and roadside stops where friendliness and the American free spirit still exists. The original idea was thought up by J. W. Parmley of Ipswitch, South Dakota in 1912; about the time that the automobile was starting to get popular as a mode of transportation. Ironically, bicyclists had started the idea of better roads, paved roads, over 10 years before, had become organized and started the Wheelmen organization with thousands of members; tried to get state and federal governments to improve the roads for as many years, to no avail. Still, in that early year of 1912, there weren't many decent all weather roads, nor long distant paved highways, and certainly not any government routes. Up until that time, the railroads had dominated the travel business, but with their monopoly for rate setting and the inconvenience of their schedules, people were losing interest and when the auto started becoming more affordable with its privacy and availability, the nation was ready for this new idea. The trail progressed as the countrywide effort to improve roads did, and the road construction and improvement slowly went from the local towns up the levels of government until the federal government became involved and finally the costs were shared by all. As the automobile became more feasible and affordable to the people, its uses were increased from driving for pleasure, to going to the doctors, moving produce to the towns, railroads and markets, then for the military reasons. Parmley and his associates wanted a decent road to go from their town of Ipswitch to Aberdeen which was only 25 miles away, but the pioneering spirit and determination of the American people increased the distance to Mobridge, South Dakota, then Hettinger and finally to a favorite tourist stop, the Yellowstone National Park. Eventually all those involved began to realize the dream of having a good road from Plymouth Rock all the way to Puget Sound. The YTA began in 1912 and was active until the 1930s, and was a grassroots effort that spread like a wildfire and was not part of some government organization, nor the results of some wealthy people, like the Lincoln Highway that was later started; but it was the dream and realization of what the American people can do and did do those many years ago. It brought together people from all the small towns and cities across the nation, working toward a common goal that would be beneficial to everyone, regardless of race, religion or ethnic background; it was a moment in time that was for the people, by the people and of the people of this great nation.
