Special buildings and structures
Covered Bridge Park at Cedarburg
This park, in Ozaukee County, is so special because it is the last original preserved Coverd Bridge (a covered wooden bridge) in Wisconsin that spans Cedar Creek. The rest of the park’s surroundings are particularly beautiful to look at and a highlight for fans of contemplative landscapes.
House on the Rock at Taliesin
The House on the Rock is an expression of the imagination of the star architect Frank Lloyd Wright, on whose idea and design the building can be traced.
