Alma National Historic District

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.

Flat Pennies Ice Cream Shop

W 6442 WI Hwy 35
Bay City, WI 54923
Phone: (715)594-3555

A great place to take a break! The Flat Penny Ice Cream Shop has an antique railroad caboose (Soo Line #27 from Colfax, WI) parked beside it! A great spot for photos. The ice cream is really creamy – nine choices of flavors, plus 10 ways to enjoy it! And lots of toppings. 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.

Where else can you take your kids out for supper where running around, spilling your food, and making some noise is all OKAY? It’s up to you what style you like…from blankets on the ground, portable camping chairs, to linen tablecloths, candles, and wine.

Campfires are often lit at dusk to take off the chill of the night and draw us into the warmth and seduction of the fire. Smores welcome!

Suncrest Gardens Farm is a 16 acre family farm nestled amongst the rolling river bluffs of west-central Wisconsin. The farm’s mission is to create and enhance community relationships through fresh, locally produced food.  Suncrest Gardens Farm was founded in rural Cochrane, WI, in 2003.  The 16 acre farm continually grows into a more sustainable farming business that brings community together around the subject of food, enriching both the body and soul with our naturally grown vegetables and our community-oriented dining experiences on the farm which often include live music.
