_She-boy-gan… We thought we would spend a day or two in Sheboygan but found that one afternoon would do just fine. The first thing we did was to find and explore the Sheboygan Indian Mound Park. It seems that over 1000 years ago the “Effigy Mound” people (500-750A.D.) made their mark by mysteriously making it a custom of burying their dead beneath mounds of dirt shaped like animals,(the picture above represents a deer), reptiles, and birds. These mounds varied in size from a length of 36’ to 118’ and a width running from 19’ to 39’. Those that we found matched those sizes but were only in the 1’ to 3’ height. Elsewhere in Wisconsin and Illinois they have been found three tiered mounds to be as high as 135’. Our next stop was two-fold… to see the Sheboygan Falls
_and have lunch. It didn’t take much time to see it all as seeing the falls (not quite what we expected…) was accomplished by just driving to the city parking lot and walking across the lawn to the fence. Finding a place to have lunch took a little more time, but that too was accomplished quickly. As we've been on this trip, we've unfortunately noticed a lot of towns having a hard time making it, and Sheboygan Falls fits right into that package. They told us the weekends did bring out some of the public but it still is a great loss. Then all we had to do was drive back to Wal-Mart, re-hook the car, and continue our way to Milwaukee.
