Geocache Description:

The Yellowstone Trail followed the railway here, and Highway 10 still does, following the same route. Notice the cobblestone facade of the Ford garage on the way through town, and the old post office, though this cache takes you instead to a long abandoned school building.

The school here was once a beautiful brick building, built 3 stories tall in this tiny town, and with many windows. The school was built in 1926, when the Yellowstone Trail was still a dirt trail along side the rail tracks.

This is one of several caches I have placed along the route of the historic Yellowstone Trail. The trail is a historic motor route that went across Wisconsin from 1918 to 1930. The Wisconsin portion of the Yellowstone Trail is 406 miles long, starting at the state line south of Kenosha and going north, and then west to Hudson.

The Wisconsin segment is just a part of one of America’s first transcontinental auto routes, a 3,754-mile long road that started in Plymouth Rock, Massachusetts and went to Puget Sound, Washington.
