    Historic Cedarburg, Wisconsin
    "The Cedarburg Mill was built by Cedarburg founders Frederick Hilgen and William Schroeder in 1855 at a cost of $22,000 and was considered one of the finest mills in the midwest. The lower walls are 32 inches thick. The design is Greek revival. The clearstory and monitor roof were popular with eastern mills at the time since they added light and ventilation. This building replaced an earlier one built by Hilgen and Schroeder in 1844. Note that the main part of the building is 5 stories high. The section to the left is of the same style as the main section, but is not as high. an incline several blocks long was built to carry material to the upper levels. A donkey was used to pull the heavy stone blocks up this incline. A dam was built nearby to provide power for the mill. The mill continued to operate until just a few years ago, but now is the home of Landmark Supply Co., a seller of pet supplies and foods. Hilgen and Schroeder owned a mill store across the street from their mill. That store served as the retail outlet for the flour and feed produced by them." Ozaukee County Website

    located in the Mill's lower level.
    You have to walk around and behind the building to get to the brew pub and outdoor beer garden.
    The Beer Garden is next to the dam/waterfall.

    Ozaukee County
    Wisconsin's grand east coast
    Historic, urban and rustic


    Ozaukee county is the 20th richest county in the United States
    according to the 1998 population estimates





    Historic Cedarburg, Wisconsin

    Visiting Cedarburg is like going back 150 years,
    for many of the limestone and cream city brick buildings from that time remain the same.
    Cedarburg, city of 11,386
    has a main street listed with over 100 Historic buildings on the National Register of Historic Places.


    Since the 1840's,
    the source of Cedarburg's growth has been Cedar Creek,
    along it's banks immigrants built five dams and mills

    Two Cedarburg area quarries provided the limestone
    used to build many of the mills, churches & homes that have survived the test of time.

    Historic Grafton, Wisconsin
    Holy Grail of Blues Music




    This spot is the Holy Grail of Blues Music

    If you are into Blues Music, you may know that this is the unlikely home of Paramount Record Company


    Ask people about some of the most important cities in the history of blues music and you'll undoubtedly hear answers like Chicago, Memphis, St. Louis or Clarksdale. What you're not as likely to hear uttered, however, is Grafton, WI. But with a rich history of recording, manufacturing and distributing music from some of the most important and influential blues musicians of the 20th century, such as Charlie Patton, Son House, Blind Lemon Jefferson, Ma Rainey and Skip James, Grafton is every bit as important as some of the better known blues cities in the nation.


    Add this fact with having Les Paul, the dude who invented the electric guitar, being born 30 miles away in Waukesha WI. and you do have one of the most important area in Rock and Roll history. This is something to remember when you are listening to that outdoor concert this summer!

    Waukesha is doing a multi million dollar museum to the Les Paul connection to R&R history.

    Cedarburg's Hamilton Historic District

    The Hamilton Schoolhouse
    built in 1887
    and was used to educate children in first through eighth grades until 1958






    Hamilton Cemetery windmill



    Cedarburg's Hamilton Historic District

    In 1847, New Dublin changed its name to Hamilton, in honor of William Hamilton, a son of Alexander Hamilton.


    With stagecoach travel on the Green Bay Road and the existence of a saw mill, other businesses sprang up. There was a Turne Hall, apothecary, black smith shop, a stage stop for travelers, two taverns and a smoke house, all were built before the grist mill was built in 1853. When the railroad came through Cedarburg in the 1870s HamiltonÔÇÖs importance declined..

    "In 1974, Hamilton was listed as an Historic Site by the Wisconsin Historical Society. Then in 1976, a large portion of the Hamilton area was declared an Historic District and placed on the State and National Registers of Historic Places."
