The Wisconsin Ghost Town That’s Perfect For An Autumn Day Trip

There was a time when Clifton was a boom town – a place with a mission: mine limestone. The Western Lime and Cement Company was based on this rocky bluff, operating a busy limestone quarry operation that grew into a small city. The lime kilns have been cold and quiet for decades and Clifton’s residents are long gone. But every autumn, a fire of a different sort lights up the ghost town here, as trees explode in dramatic shades of orange, red, and gold. It’s the perfect destination for an autumn day trip.

During these uncertain times, please keep safety in mind and consider adding destinations to your bucket list to visit at a later date.

High Cliff State Park is open year-round, although it’s hard to top the beauty of the park in the fall. Interested in discovering more Wisconsin autumn beauty? Here are 11 wonderful ways to spend a fall day.
