    That is my mother’s and a family home. It’s been in the family since around the 40’s.
    It used to be called The Barton House. It was a boarding house in the logging era.
    At one time there was a post office (lower left corner of basement) and a general store (first floor right)
    The railroad was close to the house, the railroad I believe has rights to some of the driveway. When we were kids I couldn’t go to sleep until I heard the train go by.
    Now It’s a gathering place for family to get away and get together..
    The first floor has a living room, dining room and kitchen on the left side of the house. On the right where the store used to be is a great room with kitchen area, one bedroom and bath.
    Upstairs there is seven bedrooms and two baths.Sometimes they’re all full.
    I was just scrolling through google pictures and saw our house, So I thought I’d comment. I’ll be posting (OLD) pictures about the area soon, I’ll check back and let every interested know where to find them.

    This photo reminds me of the Wisconsin I know and love – except for the rail trail, which seems to run very close to the building (house?). If it were a small hotel or something like that, I would think it was all right, but it’s awfully close for a house. On the other hand, the railroad may well have come before the building.
