Eagleton

I haven't been on a Wisconsin daytrip in a long time, so on this dreary October day, I decided to head north of Chippewa Falls for a small adventure. I wanted to check out the abandoned "Twelve Mile House" --- a once famous, nineteenth century stop for weary lumbermen along the old stage route "Chippewa Trail," now Route 124. The house stands right on the corner of 182nd Avenue and 124; it's now in a severe state of disrepair:





Just south of the Twelve Mile House is a small rural Lutheran church just east of the unincorporated hamlet of Eagleton:


Across the road is the small Eagleton cemetery, where I stumbled across some remnants of its German past:
