About Wisconsin


Wisconsin is a state in the Midwest in the United States of America. The name Wisconsin means "meeting of the waters" and is of Native American origin. Wisconsin borders Illinois, and Iowa to the south, Minnesota to the west, and Michigan to the north. To the east lies the long Lake Michigan shoreline and in the northwest a smaller Lake Superior shoreline.

Being home to two Great Lakes, thousands of inland lakes and waterways, the state could easily be called the nation's "waterworld" instead. The southern portion of the state is mainly agricultural and urban while the northern half is mostly rural and forested and is more similar in appearance to Michigan's Upper Peninsula. The central region acts as a transition zone with both forests, farm land and small cities. The state's largest city and urban area is Milwaukee located in southeastern Wisconsin. In south-central Wisconsin lies the state capital Madison.

Wisconsin is known nationwide for its dairy heritage, or as "America's Dairyland". Historically an important mining state, settlers migrated to Wisconsin in the 1830s attracted by rich farmland. Dairy farming was popularized by settlers from New York and New England in 1830-60. Dominant industries today include pulp, paper and paper products (40 percent of the state being forested), transportation and equipment manufacturing, dairy farming and food processing.

Horse or Hobby Farm Estate

Bristol, Kenosha County, Wisconsin

We purchased this farm and renovated the property with the dream to use this as a wedding and Bed and Breakfast location. With the campground across the street and multiple hotels & I94 only 8 minutes away this is the perfect location! This would also be a perfect location to make extra income for horse boarding or for a petting zoo & group outings! We already did most of the work. Since we were planning on using our home as an event location we also have multiple refrigerators, mug freezers, a cooler and lights. This is a beautiful historic house and once you see the large stone fireplace, spiral staircase and original barn beams in the family room you will fall in love! Do to unforeseen events we are moving out of the United States to Mexico. Our change of life gives you an opportunity to pick up where we left off to make this an income property. This year alone we have turned down multiple requests for Weddings and horse boarding.
