    Eisenbahn State Trail
    This county-operated 25-mile hiking trail passes through the communities
    of Eden, Campbellsport, Kewaskum and West Bend.
    Wisconsin has more Rail to Trail Miles than most States.

    Wisconsin has 42 state trails totaling more than 1,650 miles.



    "No matter where you live in Wisconsin
    somewhere nearby is a woods or a prairie to walk in,
    a stream or a marsh to paddle in,
    a lake to fish in,
    a hill to climb,
    a trail to bike.

    The natural world seems always just outside the door and up the street."

    --Ron Seely

    "The West Bend Co., maker of cookware and gadgets, takes its name from the largest city in the county.

    West Bend was settled in the 1840s, and its location halfway between Milwaukee and Fond du Lac made it an early traveler's haven.

    A dam and a sawmill were built in 1846, and two years later, a gristmill was added.

    The city's first tavern opened in 1849, and the Washington House, one of the largest and finest hotels in the state at the time, was constructed in 1864.

    In the 1850s, West Bend became the Washington County seat after a ferocious battle with Port Washington that ended up with the Legislature splitting the county in half, leading to the formation of Ozaukee County.

    In 1873, the railroad arrived in the bustling city, and from the railroad came new prosperity. With water and rail and eager workers, the city became home to Enger Kress Leather Goods, Gehl Manufacturing and West Bend Aluminum Co.

    Driving tour

    Starting point: Intersection of Highway 33 and 7th Ave.

    1. Bible Baptist Church, 204 S. 7th Ave.: Built in 1856 by a Baptist congregation, the church was later used by German Methodists and Immanuel Lutherans.

    2. Fuge house, 506 S. 7th: Built in 1905 by A.C. Fuge Jr., the home is constructed of rock-faced concrete blocks.

    3. Old courthouse and jail, 300 block of S. 6th Ave.: The jail was built in 1886 and was also the home of the county sheriff and his family for many years. It was closed in 1967. The courthouse was constructed in 1889 and was used until the early 1990s. Both are now used by the county Historical Society.

    4. Old City Hall, 100 N. 6th Ave.: Built in 1900, the rear wing was used by the Fire Department. The tower was used to hang and drain the hoses.

    5. Newspaper building, 121 N. Main. St.: The Pilot and Echo newspapers operated out of this structure, which was built in 1894.

    7. S.F. Mayer house, 732 Beech St.: Stephen Mayer, a leading industrialist and local political official, built the Queen Anne style house in 1893. He operated the West Bend Brewery Co. and played a role in founding the West Bend Aluminum Co.

    8. St. Agnes Convent, 1384 Fond du Lac Ave.: The fieldstone building was constructed in 1858 for a pioneer missionary. It was later used as a convent and home.

    10. Herbst house, 422 Commerce St.: This Cream City brick home with Greek Revival touches was built in 1865 by Wenzel Herbst, who built barrels used by Barton Mills.

    12. Arzbacher/Eagle Brewery, 459 N. Main St.: In the middle of the block, this Italianate brewery was built in 1856. It was home to Lithia and Old Timers beer.

    13. Enger Kress building, 151 Wisconsin St.: The business started in 1894 and moved to this building 1911. The building is being remodeled into apartments for seniors.

    14. Frisby house, 304 S. Main St.: This Italianate building constructed in 1856 is now an office building.

    15. Verbeck home, 906 E. Decorah: Built in 1851, this is one of the first homes built in the West Bend
    "

    6. The Washington House,
    This Italianate structure built in 1864
    was used mostly as a hotel and a theater.
