We visited Villa Louis while en route through Wisconsin & Iowa. The house has been carefully restored to its early 20th century state and is a fascinating snapshot on the development of the trade and social history of the area. Not to be missed.

The entire island was excellent - tons of history and some buildings still existed. I wasn't aware of any of this history, so it added to the true joy.
