This is The Last Underground Railroad Station You Can Tour In Wisconsin And It’s Incredible
Milton is a small town just outside of Janesville that’s absolutely full of interesting history. Founded in 1838 by Joseph Goodrich, Milton sat at an important crossroads on the military road between Chicago and Madison as well as the road from Janesville to Fort Atkinson. Add in its proximity to the Rock River and this small town from the 1800s was far more important than you’d ever imagine a Wisconsin town of 5,000 people could be.
