Lake Mills

Episode 504: Shot in Summer 2015, first aired in January 2016

They call it Legendary Lake Mills. But as we explored this idyllic community, we uncovered facts, not legends.

John Gurda warned us that some people believe that in the bottom of Rock Lake there are ancient pyramids. Others believe they are rock formations caused by geological shifts. Hence our first Fact: Rock Lake has either pyramids or rock formations, and if you want to debate it, we’re not getting in the middle of it! Fact: Tyranena Brewing Company is the place to meet. Fact: Water House Foods and Doyle’s Dogs personify the Lake Mills spirit: True quality — of both people and food! (Oh, and John loves to eat. That’s also a fact.) Fact: This is a city full of active people who really love to get outside and enjoy exercise and life. Fact: Ephraim Pottery is tremendously cool. Fact: Old Churches without active congregations in Lake Mills are recycled and reused, and John really wants to live in an old church – and Cynthia Weston’s “chouse” is the one he wants most. Fact: Commons Park is really a town square shaped like a triangle — and it’s as charming as can be.

Fact: Lake Mills will always be Legendary to us!
