In 1938 President Franklin D. Roosevelt established the Great River Road along the Mississippi River. The road follows the river for nearly 3,000 miles through 10 states, and in 2012 the Great River Road in Wisconsin was voted the "prettiest drive" in America by the readers of the Huffington Post. Come celebrate the Great River Road at Stonefield, one of the Great River Road's interpretive centers.
