The Mecikalski Stovewood Building, built at the turn-of-the-century by Prussian immigrant John Mecikalski, is a unique historical structure of real architectural significance. Stovewood architecture is characterized by short-cut logs which are stacked and joined by mortar or clay. This singularly American form of architectural folk art is a preservation project of the Kohler Foundation, Inc. This National Historical Site is the only known commercial example utilizing the stovewood building method in the United States. Many turn of the century exhibits associated with the building's history as a General Store, Saloon, Farmers co-op, Cheese Factory and Blacksmith Shop are displayed.
