Travelogue: Wisconsin’s Great River Road National Scenic Byway @ Green Bay Botanical Garden
Cost: FREE
Mar 20 @ 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm

Melinda Anne Roberts, WisconsinHistoricalMarkers.com, Hobby Historian, author of “Little Wisconsin”

dog sitting in great river road chair“The Best Drive in America”, The Great River Road National Scenic Byway adjoins the Mississippi River for 3,000 miles, passing through 10 states from northern Minnesota to the Gulf of Mexico — with 250 miles and 33 River Towns located along Wisconsin’s “West Coast”. In this travelogue we’ll visit seven Wisconsin Great River Road communities, each with a distinct history, personality and legacy, including Maiden Rock (named for the suicide of a lovelorn Indian maiden), Stockholm (whose founding father was so unscrupulous the townspeople prevented his burial in the community cemetery) and Cochrane (home to Herman Rusch’s whimsical Prairie Moon Sculpture Garden).

Join us for an evening exploring the ease with which you can put an herbed bread on the table … and get some tasty (and yeasty) samples from a surprising number of literary classics.
