    Talking ......................... Cadott - halfway point between the equator and North Pole



    halfway point between the Equator and North Pole
    (why does the pole seem so very much closer most of the winter?)

    was designed in England,
    manufactured in Minneapolis,
    used in Cornell from 1913 until 1972
    & unused since 1972

    Arrow Just north of Chipewa Falls Wisconsin - The Cobban Bridge







    The Cobban Bridge
    constructed in 1908
    486-foot span
    by the Modern Steel Structural Company of Waukesha, WI
    a two-span Pennsylvania overhead truss type bridge
    oldest of its kind in Wisconsin
    Originally it crossed the Chippewa River
    just upstream from its junction with the Yellow River
    The bridge was dismantled during the construction of the Wissota Dam in 1916

    Between 1916 and 1918,
    the Wisconsin-Minnesota Power & Light Company
    built a hydroelectric dam four miles downstream from the bridge,
    putting the site under water



    During the winters of 1916 and 1917
    the disassembled bridge was hauled here by horse and sled
    with the movers receiving one dollar per ton for the fifteen mile trip

    Talking Just north of Chippy Falls - Old Abe - Jim Falls, Wisconsin








    "Old Abe"
    http:wikipedia.org/Old_Abe
    the famous eagle mascot of the 8th Wisconsin Infantry
    Taken from its nest when only four months old
    the eagle had been purchased and presented to the regiment
    then preparing to go to the front
    "Old Abe" was given a place next to the regiment flag
    where he remained for the next three years.

    The eagle died in 1881 and was stuffed and mounted for public display

    I couldn't make that up

    Arrow /////////////////////////////////Dells Mill - Augusta, Wi









    oldest Wisconsin Mill still in operation.

    The Dells Mill Museum is 5 miles north Augusta WI
    on County Road V just off of State Highway 27
    (about 35 miles SW of Chippewa Falls, WI)



    "This remarkable, five-story building,
    built in 1864 is entirely constructed of hand-hewn timbers
    fastened with wooden pegs.

    Except for the grindstones,
    the mill machinery, including the millwheel, gears and pulleys,
    is also fashioned entirely of wood.
    The waterpower generated by Bridge Creek
    is transferred from waterwheel to milling machinery
    over 3000 feet of belting and 175 pulleys."
    - section from the Explore Wisconsin website










    half a mile to the east of the Dells Pond
    lies the Dells Mill school
    built in 1866
    to serve as an elementary school for grades 1 through 8
