Holy Hill Rd. & Fond du Lac Ave.
Established in 1842 by the Phillip Dhein family, one of several families from the Hunsruck area of Germany who settled here, this crossroads settlement has been designated as an historic district. Most of these buildings have been preserved and many are in use today, as they were more than a century ago. Christ Church, built of limestone in 1862, houses a museum operated by the Germantown Historical Society that contains displays and artifacts of early pioneer life. Walking tour brochures are available from the Historical Society. Today all 22 of the original structures remain. Also youÔÇÖll get a chance to visit the Sila Lydia Bast Bell Museum and information center.
The Crossroads are about 10 miles south of West Bend.
Take Hwy "P" south, left on Hwy 143 (Fond Du Lac Road) to the Settlement.
Note: This Historic Settlement is not a destination,
but a pleasant wayside stop on your way to Holy Hill.
