On Sept 27, 2012 we traveled to Dodgeville. This town is located near some great  parks, namely Governor Dodge, Tower Hill and Blue Mounds State Park. We visited

Governor Dodge also during our adventure here.  The city is named after Henry Dodge who founded the town in 1827,  40 miners were also among the first residents.  Downtown is one of the oldest districts in Wisconsin.  Dodgeville is also the county seat of Iowa county.

We came here after our visit to Governor Dodge State Park to sight see and have lunch. Beautiful downtown with the trees displaying their fall colors.
