According to Dunn County records, the Oaklawn Stock Farm was established in 1889. The 518 acre farm was equipped with all the “modern” improvements including indoor plumbing, (we’ve continued that tradition), closets, hot water heat, electricity to avoid the constant fear of the dangerous lantern, and a water tower to provide water to all the outlying farm buildings.
When someone says “there’s nothing to do in a small town”…they haven’t looked.
Menomonie and the surrounding area can keep you wondering what’s over the next hill for several days. Western Wisconsin is postcard perfect, with surprises tucked into valleys surrounded by rolling hills. Find micro breweries, fine dining, snowshoeing, live theater and disc golf, all within a 10 minute drive.
“Breakfast with strangers/new friends.” Someone asked me the other day “if all my guests were tourists?” I guess I never think of them as having that label.
