Bernstein's Candy factory
A few years back,made the ferry trip'cross lake Michigan,on the last coal fired ship plyin'the lakes. Don't know if it's still runnin',but we docked in Manitowoc,and found our way to Bernstein's Candy factory,and it'd be well worth any's time,to pay a visit,'specially if ya have a sweet tooth. It's like walkin'thru a time warp,the furnishing's were the same,from back in the forties,and all the candy is made on site,and you'll be glad ya took the time t'go check it out,guaranteed...

Kettle Moraine Scenic Drive goes Hollywood
In Spring 2006, this New Prospect 1876 General Store (Zahn's Trading Post) had scences from the movie "Legend Trip" filmed here. The Movie was a horror flop.
This General store, much like many of the old building in Wisconsin, have been "modernized" in the 1920-40 era with siding, windows and new interiors. I have talked to many Eastern Wisconsin residents whose home are 100 plus years old and have log and mortar frame work, but, by it's exterior looks, you would think that the house was built in the 1940's.
