Facility:The Milton House Museum
Description:Pioneer, Joseph Goodrich, came to Prairie du Lac, as Milton was called then, in 1838, looking for a better place for his family. He chose land at the intersection of two Indian trails and built a small home. This crossroads became heavily traveled and seemed a good place for an inn. Not all of his guests traveled by stagecoach or train. Some were spirited into his care by the Underground Railroad. Visit here and have a look at the past.

Great place to explore that particular period of history with artifacts,rooms, and information about how travelers lodged so many years ago, but the favorite with our daughter is the tunnel that was used to help hide slaves...it leads from the Milton House to a small log cabin near the Milton House....the cabin itself is great for those who love the Little House series. Park/playground across the street and splash pad just around the corner. Enjoy!
