Freedom Heritage Bicycle Tour

Before the Civil War, the Milton House stagecoach inn was part of the Underground Railroad, a network of secret havens that helped runaway slaves get to Canada and freedom. On the Milton House tour you can follow a hidden tunnel to a log cabin that offered a hiding place in the event "slave catchers" showed up. Effigy Mounds at Lake Koshkonong testify to the diversity of Native American culture. Although these low, often animal-shaped earthen mounds sometimes contained graves, they are clearly ceremonial sites and not just cemeteries. However, little is known of the culture that built these enigmatic mounds.
