Main and Second Streets
Alma, WI 54610

In 1982, 346 acres and over 200 buildings were included in the designation of the City of Alma as a National Historic District (#82000631) when it was placed on the National Register of Historic Places (NRHP).  The district is roughly bounded by railroad tracks, 2nd Street, Swift Street and Cedar Street.  Three periods of significance were recognized:  1850-1874, 1875-1899, 1900-1924

The National Historic District shows architectural styles of the late 1800s and early 1900s. Blocks within the District are separated by unique stairways given street names. Alma is located along the Mississippi River, stretched snugly between the river and steep 500 foot bluffs. Early settlers were attracted to the area because it reminded them of their homelands, Switzerland and Germany.

If you need a protein boost they feature hot dogs and homemade beef sandwiches, plus pop and coffee (complete with a “splash” of ice cream if you wish!), bottled water, hobo sticks and PowerAde. A really neat thing to do: get your ice cream. Eat it at a picnic table, with your dog fastened to a “hitching post” next to you. Be sure to mention you have a dog! They have very nutritious doggy treats!). Then get in your car; drive to the BNSF railroad crossing just down the road (you can see it from Flat Pennies), cross over the tracks; drive straight ahead to the Mississippi River (2 short blocks); turn right; go the end of the street (maybe 3 blocks). You’ll be in a parking lot at a park. Get out of the car; walk out into the shaded park to water’s edge. Or walk in the sand along the shore. Dip your toes in the Mississippi River. Or maybe you’d like to skip rocks on the water or look for agates. If you’re lucky, a fisherman may come off the river and you can see what kind of luck he had fishing—or not. A good place to linger.

Directions: As you enter the town limits, watch on the bluff side of the road for the caboose–just about in the middle of the town. Off street parking available.

McGilvray Road and the Van Loon Wildlife Area

Holmen, WI 54636

The Van Loon Wildlife Area Truss Bridge Group is a unique combination of five rare bowstring arch truss bridges and one low truss bridge which was adopted from Pierce County. They represent two styles of bridge construction popular in the 19th and early 20th centuries which are quickly being replaced due to deterioration or inability to meet today’s greater traffic requirements. Currently the bridges are open only to pedestrian traffic. The bridges are located in the Van Loon Wildlife Area on the Old McGilvray Bottoms Road. The wildlife area contains about 4000 acres of land, much of it former farmland, along and through the Black River and its backwater. The purpose of the area is to provide birdwatching, fishing and hunting for waterfowl, upland game and deer.

Directions: Located in Northwest La Crosse County, about 3.5 miles northwest of the Holmen. The property extends 5 miles south of the Black River, from Hwy 53/93 Hunter’s Bridge to New Amsterdam on County Trunk XX.

Stockholm Institute

Spring Street
Stockholm, WI 54769

In the Village of Stockholm there is a small, picturesque museum in a building that was once the old Post Office. It is the home of the Stockholm Institute, a historical society incorporated in 1984 to preserve and celebrate the history of the Stockholm area. Stockholm was fortunate to have been the home of Orlin Anderson, now deceased, who was a dedicated amateur historian and archivist of all things related to the area. He was also a dedicated pack-rat and because of that predilection there are probably items and photos in the museum that would otherwise have been long lost. Orlin’s enthusiasm for all things old encouraged others to donate their objects, books, and photos, and it may have been the accumulation of items that inspired insightful residents to create an organization that would preserve and display this wealth of material and memories. Thus was born the Institute. Its visitors come from across the country and around the world. It publishes a regular newsletter for its members, and in the past has been a sponsor of the Heritage Days that Stockholm has hosted. In 2006, the Institute welcomed the 50-member Bjurtjarn Theater Group. This group toured the U.S. performing its play “Off to America – They Sold their Homesteads” (a story about their ancestors who founded Stockholm). After the events and festivities, the theater group donated the rights to the play to the Stockholm Institute. The Institute’s museum building has recently been refurbished and redecorated in an appropriate Swedish palette, with new shelves for books and a large work table available for visitors who wish to review the family histories that have been gathered. A local archivist is also in the process of identifying and organizing the Institute’s wealth of material (some of it retrieved from Orlin’s estate) so that it remains usable to future historians.
