Say Cheese in Plymouth, WI

6-29 and July 1, 2012

On June 29 and July 1, 2012 we stopped in Plymouth on the way to Manitowoc for our early summer visit. On the way, we encountered a historical building, The Wade House.

It wasn’t open to visitors at the time  we came through so we went on to Plymouth which wasn’t far from there.  Cheese has been an important part of Plymouth since the town’s founding.  After entering town you are greeted by Antoinette the cow towering above this sign outlining the town’s history and the importance of cheese making here.

It was Friday night and we ate at a restaurant close to this sign,  Antoinettes. Wonderful food there, we had broasted chicken with sweet potato fries, yum!.

We had more time to explore on July 1, time to walk downtown on historic Mill Street. There were many beautiful murals painted on the sides of the buildings.

At the end of the street is Veterans Memorial Park.  The Mullet River was busy with kids fishing, it was a hot summer day.
